Two RHS gardens in one week. The first a planned visit to Wisley with some friends and the second a spur of the moment visit to Hyde Hall over in Essex.
I took lots of photographs at Wisely but, perhaps too impatient or the wrong light, wasn’t pleased with them at all. Whilst not what I’d call a keen photographer I do feel I should do the best I can for the blog so I’m trying hard to step away from the phone and use Derek’s Nikon. So it was off to Hyde Hall to try and do a bit better.
It wasn’t just about the photography though, there were also a couple of nurseries that I was keen to catch up with. Primrose Bank who put on a stunning display at Tatton Park and Ken Muir because I wanted to talk about fruit trees for the new plot. This is a quite a small show with around fifty nurseries represented, but they’re all top notch so great if you’re in the market to buy great quality plants at a reasonable price, want plenty of choice and some face to face advice then is a good one for the diary.
What I’ve shown here are some of the things I thought were particularly interesting or pretty.
Here are the details of the nurseries and there is a gallery below, click on the image for information, double click for a larger view. I’ve also put these same photographs and a few extras over on facebook if you’d like to take a look the link is here.
