Westonbury Mill Water Garden and Hergest Croft Outing
For this year’s club visit we decided on a day trip taking in two well-known gardens in Herefordshire. In the end 14 members and guests met up at Westonbury and started the visit with a welcome cuppa (of course!) after which we descended on the plant sales before even venturing into the garden itself.
Of course this meant we could give our undivided attention to appreciating the ingenuity of design and planting flair. It is indeed a very special garden. The follies were stunning and the planting lush and colourful.
An excellent lunch set us up for our next stop, Hergest Croft Garden.
Here the plant sales were again swooped upon before anything else was even thought about! Satisfied with our success we then set off to explore the garden itself and Park Wood. The Rhododendrons and Azaleas were looking fabulous as can hopefully be seen from the photos.
Tea, more plant purchases and we were ready to head home.
All in all a highly successful and fun day.
