Harlow Carr Gardens


We had a trip to Harrogate a few days ago..on the spur of the moment. We used to visit regularly when we lived there..The RHS took over in 2000, the year we moved back to Northumberland.l I have been back a few times but OH hasn’t been…so he was amazed at the changes…..RHS has more dosh than the Northern Horticultural Society ever had……
Hope you enjoy the tour,,,,

These are pics of the new alpine house,….it is huge and gorgeous……more to come

They were using huge lumps of rock….sandstone I think….must have cost a fortune!!

There are a few areas put down to meadow which are lovely…..

Thats just a taste…more later…dont want to bore you ………..

I would love to make do with Rosemoor Grindle, it's beautiful and so peaceful. Wish it was my 'local'!! Still, Wisley is quite near, must go again soon it's been a while. I've never been to Harlow Carr, it looks great

I asked for the alpine house from Wisley for christmas but it didn't materialise. Perhaps I'll ask for this one this year - may be lucky, you never know.
The whole place looks absolutely wonderful.
