This Sunday, August the 18th, sees the second of our Garden open days. With the first at the start of the month blighted by heavy rain we’re hoping for better weather this time around.
There is so much to see in the three acre gardens which include the stunning ‘Chapel Gardens’ with their wide array of bright colours and giant lillies. Making your way down through the valley there are cool blue borders and the hidden pond which was cut into the side of the hill to win a bet.
Further on at the bottom of the valley is the ‘Prairie planting’ with over 2000 plants. Other areas of interest include the ‘Buddleia bank’ & the ‘Japanese style Garden’
Its not just the flowers and plants to see at Highcroft, the bright flowers attract a multitude of butterflies and bees Painted Ladies, Peacocks, Red Admirals and Comma’s.
There are also a variety of ornamental creatures hidden around the gardens just like ‘Percy’ the Pheasant, a favourite of Barry’s granddaughter!
The Gardens are open from 1.30 to 5.30 with ample parking at the Village hall. Refreshments are available in the adjoining chapel and there are a wide selection of plants available for sale.
We hope to see you here!
