This year we’ve kept the gates open for a little longer as the hydrangeas were still putting on a good show. Hydrangea paniculata ‘October Bride’ (true to its name) has put on a good show. So we’re closing up on Saturday, 23 November and keeping the walled garden safe until we start all over again in March next year. Thank you to all our visitors and especially to all our wonderful volunteers who have put so many careful hours into looking after this amazing collection. It’s been a busy year.
