Flower Report for August 7 2013

The summer floral display continues at its peak with the Rose Garden in full bloom and the annual and perennial borders bursting with colour. You will find fascinating an incredible collection of hanging baskets, window boxes and container plantings. We even plant up the tops of our garbage containers. When strolling through the gardens be sure to look for our many topiary figures strategically placed throughout the grounds.
