    Just what I thought Plantpauper imageimage unfortunately the delphiniums are on the other side of MY wall image my neighbour always has success but mine lose out to slugs and snails every time! image

    These pictures are at Helmingham Hall near Ipswich in Suffolk, Rosemummy image

    Lovely photos Wonky and a very interesting looking garden.   Not sure I'll ever lust after a knot garden but those mixed borders are gorgeous and so are the roses.

    why do you all live near nice gardens?! sheffield is a bit rubbish! OK so Chatsworth isn't far, or Hardwick but it's a bit limited! we're not even going to my (real/spiritual) home, Cornwall this year,got mid Wales for a week ( can't find any gardens nearich or way there/back) and north Norfolk, any suggestions where to visit there would be good, next year back to Cornwall ... or Devon ( then one day I'll just announce to my family that we're staying!)

    It was a good trip, I'll see if I've got any photos worth showing.

    Well done Wonky - I was too busy nattering to do any proper photos. image

    Thanks for a lovely day everyone! image

    Rosemummy - definitely East Ruston - even if you need to travel a few miles. The crabs and other sea food at the fishmngers in nearby Happisburgh is worth a detour too image
