Flower and Garden Report June 11, 2015

We can safely say that our summer display is well on its way to being fully in bloom as the borders have filled in nicely with an abundance of colour. To be quite honest, the garden has more of a mid-summer look and our amazing collection of hanging baskets and container plantings are already dazzling our visitors.

The Rose garden is well on its way with a multitude of new flowers bursting into bloom on a daily basis, providing brilliant colour and intoxicating fragrance that may cause you to suddenly stop in your tracks. However, please be aware of other visitors in your vicinity as we don’t want any accidents when you come to a sudden stop!

All kidding aside, we are very proud of what we do and we would love for you to come out for a truly unforgettable experience in what many consider to be the most colourful and spectacular garden in the world.
