my favourite; hyde hall (again)

just look at all the gorgeousness of rhs hyde hall at the moment! the dry garden is totally amazing, bursting with colour accented with the bright orange papavers, sunny yellow euphorbias and deep purple alliums. I hugged my favourite betula as we passed through the woodland walk and emerged to a sea of purple palavers. we took in the heavenly scent of the rosa "rhapsody in blue" as we walked up to the queen mothers garden where the children admired the swathes of alliums and played hide and seek in the wild meadow. at the top of the hill the giant terracotta pots looked wonderful planted solely with gerberas. the astrantias with their paper like flowers looked so pretty and the ferns uncurling for a new year are just so fascinating.

I just love the architectural look of the artichokes growing in the vegetable garden with the wonderful glaucous green leaves and it was great to see the progress that has been made on the new global growth vegetable garden. I just cannot wait to get in there when it is planted up.

 

there are many other exciting developments happening this year at hyde hall; extensions to the visitor centre, a new perennial meadow and the winter walk to name but a few!

    Enjoyed the article. Several years ago I planted trees in my front and back yards. My front yard is designed to be a rock garden, the back a vegetable and fruit garden. Most of the trees have done well. The rocks have eroded a bit, and probably need to be replaced. I was able to install several raised organic vegetable beds. The vegetables are most delicious. The fruit trees just provide shade. Only one pear tree is producing. I also installed a greenhouse from a kit. It is almost like a shed, except it's translucent for growing seedlings. Just love it. Can't wait for the heat to go away and start gardening again.
