Flower Report for July 10 2014

The Rose Garden continues to impress with its visual feast of colour and an abundance of delightful fragrances. Throughout the entire garden the summer bedding plant display is at its peak and we are now only waiting for the Dahlias to kick in with their late season burst of colour. Not to be overlooked are the sprawling perennial borders which provide a vast array of exceptional colours, forms and textures to further enhance the visual feast. As a finishing touch we have also created a fascinating collection of hanging baskets, window boxes and container plantings that enhance our buildings, patios and pathways - we even plant up the tops of our litter bins!
