    Beautiful gardens in a lovely riverside setting

    On 19th June we visited this garden. I looked forward to see the clematis collection. FORGET IT! The garden overrun with weeds, hard to see the plants. Unpruned dead roses etc. This is now a sad neglected garden and it is shameful to hear that in Dec 2010 all the gardeners were sacked.

    A huge disappointment when we visited on June 4! I was expecting to see a wide variety of clematis in bloom in the garden, after all it boosts having a National Collection of Clematis. Instead I saw too many newly planted clematis struggling to survive or seemingly dead. This display would not encourage me to buy a clematis. The roses, perennial geraniums, and flowering deciduous shrubs put on the best display in the garden in beds that lacked a gardener's caring weeds, dry soil, bare ground. Thank goodness there was no admission charge. Even so, the half day of our time it took to get here and return to our hotel could have been spent better elsewhere. Soup in the cafe took 10 minutes to arrive at our table! The property has a shop offering knick knacks and sofas and chairs as well as a nursery with plants easily obtained at any nursery in your area.

    After finding it's on a bigger scale than we'd realised- the site has a large nursery, furniture, craft/gift shops, garden antiques and probably more! We went towards the house & the simply beautiful formal ponds. We luckily got to see the perfect wisteria (amazing!) and then explored the rest of the gardens. Its such a lovely setting by the river but overall I did feel the gardens needed a lot of weeding (nettles!) However I like the loose style of planting and its not too fussy & neat in the way some gardens are. There are lovely roses, Iris, and of course clematis & I'm sure later on I will visit to see more clematis as there were only a few out at this time.
