Flower Report for July 24 2014

Throughout the entire garden the summer display is at its peak, but the Rose Garden continues to be the highlight providing us with an outstanding display of colour and an abundance of intoxicating fragrances. The dahlias are growing by leaps and bounds and each week they continue to produce more blooms. Often overlooked, the perennial borders continue to perform well and provide us with a vast array of exceptional colours, forms and textures to further enhance the visual feast. Around the various buildings and patios areas you will also find a spectacular collection of hanging baskets, window boxes and container plantings that complement and add to the overall experience.
