I had a day-out with a friend last week and we decided to visit Packwood House. After lunch of a cheese sandwich and flapjack (my friend had the soup of the day) in the tea-room, we walked round the gardens which are particularly lovely.
Into the Carolean walled garden
The "Yellow" border is full of perennials using a colour combination of pink, yellow, scarlet, carmine and lavender.
The Rose Bays
The Sunken Garden
The Raised Terrace Walk where the borders are planted with "hot" colours.
Views towards the house and Yew Garden
The Kitchen Garden
The "Pizza Garden" planted by children from Dorridge Primary School
Welcome to my blog. I have been interested in natural history from an early age and we have tried to create a garden attractive to wildlife.
