BANK HOLIDAY IN HAMPSHIRE NGS GARDEN...

18 comments


This is our third visit to this wonderful garden…
There are a great many large and indeed beautiful gardens open in Hampshire, but this one is one very dear to us, it is one and a half acres, with many unusual, rare, also exotic plants, and the National collection of Eucalyptus which take your breath away, many of the the exotic plants were still under wraps because of the bad weather, but there was still plenty to see……..


OH was in charge of Colin our daughter’s dog, (the daxy in some of the pics!!) who thoroughly enjoyed himself.
Every time we visit we discover something new, and this is just a very small view of a really inspirational garden and a credit to the owners………….. and they serve brilliant carrot cake too!! hope you enjoyed a little part of lovely Hampshire.

I would love to have water flowing through my garden like that. Those azaleas and Rhodys are beautiful. I like that circle of ? cabbage palms and the yellow acer is spectacular. It is an extremely nice garden.

What a beautiful garden! The eucs have got to be one of my favourite tree there. I love visiting small or large private gardens, more so than those on gigantic National Trust Estate types. The owners are usually very friendly and welcoming, and mingles with the visitors...I love that.

oh, lovely, it looks very restful. the tree in the 4th pic from the bottom - is that helical shape natural, or was it "induced", do you know?

Your beautiful pics do this garden great credit. It is truly stunning and the work that must go into it is hard to imagine.
What a lovely day out in such beautiful surroundings,

Fran I would say it had been induced, will ask next time we visit...
Michaella I do agree so much more friendly, I love the trees, they were so large it was difficult to photograph them....
Sheila sunny on a Bank holiday unheard of? they were very lucky. (and so were we).
Holly it was, we will no doubt be back !!
Karen it is so well designed, hard to convey in the photographs, there was a huge central lawn that had paths that led off in several directions,(like the spokes of a wheel) taking you to different vistas, and it was only a field 22 years ago!!
Cinders I never get tired of visiting this garden, something different to see each time we go..
TT thanks, Colin managed to leave a calling card in the first five mins, luckily we were well prepared!! and the owners had dogs, and had provided drinking water.
HB the circle of large plants were hardy bananas, they stay in the ground all year.
Sticki the trees are quite spectacular, especially when you stand under them...
Diane, and this was only part of the garden!! pleased you all enjoyed a visit to a country garden in Hampshire
