Flower Report for July 31 2013

We have reached the peak of our summer floral display with the Rose Garden in full bloom and the annual and perennial borders bursting with colour. You will find fascinating 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.
