A sweet little garden in Northamptonshire thats been loved. It has a very homely feel. It is quiet small but it is immaculately kept and dead headed to perfection. You will see some large herbaceous borders in spectactular colour and excellent combinations of perennials. You can also stop for a cup of tea and cake or a light lasagna or quiche in the pretty courtyard tea rooms.

We are coming to the end of the growing season giving us the opportunity to prepare for next years garden by planting, pruning and perhaps rearranging borders whilst enjoying a glorious glut of fruit and veg.
If you plan spring bulbs well and its not hard, your bulbs can begin in Februrary and take you into June when the summer bedding takes over.
Spring bulbs are planted now all except tulips they wait until November but you can buy them ready. That means plant your snowdrops, dafodills, narcissi, hyacynths, sillas, iris, crocus, alliums, fritillarias, muscari, camassias etc to enjoy next spring.
We found this part of the East Ruston Garden in Norfolk very close to closing time so I felt I needed more time to do it justice. It is the most wonderful soft flowing planting and absolutely at its peak late summer.
A beautiful garden with echos of many of my favourite great gardens such as Hicote and Great Dixter but also totally remarkable and exciting with a delightful appeal of its own. This garden is a credit to those who have brought it to life
This is just one of the gardens within the fabulous 32 acre garden at East Ruston Old Vicarage in North Norfolk I mistakenly called this a Mediterranean garden but its not. Its in the guide books as a Desert Wash and represents Californian planting.
Before and after pics. Everone needs a good trim and this little Yorkshire Terrier has just had her first. Well done Christie and thankyou for coming to visit us at the Nurseries and show us your new hair cut.
