We are hoping visitors this Sunday will get to see the butterflies in the Gardens, and the bumble bees and hoverflies. The flowers in the borders and of course the buddleias are a great draw for them.

The Italian garden is colourful, with Heleniums and Red Hot Pokers as the standout flowers. In the walled kitchen garden, the cut flower border and the dahlias are now at their best. And there are roses adding different hues elsewhere too.

We are celebrating our trees at this Open Day, so volunteers worked to make sure the champions look at their best!
