We had a wonderful day yesterday hosting our first ever plant fair! Plenty of specialist nurseries were on hand to sell their plants and offer advice and we were honoured to welcome veteran broadcaster and author Roy Lancaster to join in with the Hardy Plant Society celebrating their 60th anniversary here.
The weather was kind and we welcomed a large number of visitors. Our garden manager Andrew ran two popular garden tours and we received lovely feedback from all those attending.
This coming Sunday we have our next garden opening for the National Garden Scheme so do join us if you can and support both ourselves and some very worthwhile charities that benefit through the National Garden Scheme.. ... See moreSee less
Thank you very much for your hospitality and organisation the nurseries really enjoyed it and would love to return!
Antonia Forster should be there

The exhibition on 'Educating Boys and Girls in Jane Austen's England' at Winchester College comes to a close next week. Chawton House Library loaned several items for it. One of the treasures on display is this 'Charade by a Lady' in the hand of Jane Austen. Writing riddles and charades was a popular pursuit in the period and fans of 'Emma' will remember its comic use in the novel! ... See moreSee less
Such an interesting exhibition, thank you.
