We'll have some photos from Kew in July, BM - can't wait!
And a bit warmer I hope looking forward to it too x
Thanks for sharing. Lovely photos.
Hazel - if I lived near Harlow Carr I'd be teher every couple of weeks saoking up plants and ideas and probably raiding the plant shop for some little something. As it is, I was there just the once in 2007 after the RHS Tatton show and was enchanted.
Same with Wisley. Years since I've had time for a proper visit to the gardens but if I have a couple of hours to spare on the way to or from the Channel I pop in for a quickie. Entry to all the RHS gardens is free to RHS members and one guest.
Thank you all for the kind comments. It is more than worth the visit, I'll be popping down there again in June/July for the largest herbaceous borders I've ever seen!
Saville Gardens is another stunner, especially for the Rhodos late May/early June

Here is last year's thread in case anyone is interested. I'll have a look for other years too, some lovely photos. http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/garden-design/gardens-we-have-visited-2016/984442.html

Ooh, thanks for those links, Lizzie!
Beautiful BL can't wait to go back!
Today we went to Anglesey Abbey, near Cambridge. Too late for snowdrops and daffodils, obviously, but the parkland and trees were beautiful. The herbaceous garden was full of future promise and some plants had started to flower. The rose garden was only at the leaf stage. There was some beautiful bark in the winter garden. We had a look around the lovely house too.
That bark above and below the birches is stunning. Do you know what they are? I have prunus serrula on my shopping list but that top one is even more gorgeous.
Great to see the birches with spring greenery and not just in winter as we usually do.
