    I'll probably be stopping off at RHS Bridgewater on my way to North Wales at Easter, where I might just find myself visiting Plas Cadnant or Bodnant, or both. Ness isn't far off the route either so that's another possibility, but Bridgewater is spot on half way so is a great place for a stop. Also planning to go to Harlow Carr again towards the end of April.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
  • I am in love with those gardens. <3
    I am glad I found your post while searching for this website in which I can read literature review topics easily.
  • We went to Hidcote on Easter Sunday and it was not only beautiful but also interesting. Unfortunately, my camera's batteries gave up after a few shots.

    I took a picture of their Lavender plants. There was a board telling that they normally cut the Lavender in Autumn, but they decided this year to cut it hard back in April hoping they could stop the cycle replacing the Lavender every 4 years. They believe it will grow again.
    I'm not sure when we will make it to Hidcote again, but if the one or other forum member who visits Hidcote could let me know if the Lavender has come back, this would be great. If have never seen Lavender cut back in such amount.

    Unfortunately, this is the only picture I can offer.

    I my garden.

    RHS Wisley has lots of colour at the moment, lots of tulips near the glasshouse.
