Harlow Carr Gardens -Part 3


Some of you seem to want to see more pics….so here they are..

A lovely little potting shed..lots of “proper” pots and an old lawnmower…it even had an indoor loo!!

The small glasshouse was filled with pots of stocks….they smelled lovely!

The pear espalliered on the wall had lots of baby fruit onit. The red currants growing up the wires is a good idea….taking up very little room.

We are into the herbaceous borders now….

The alpine strawberry was plonked in the middle of one of the wasn’t obvious why!!…..the handsome young man is my OH!!

the statue of the little boy sitting on a log, holding a duckling…is actually on the edge of a small pond….they seem to have just let it overgrow with that stripey grass…..can’t remember name but its very persistent!!

There’s just a few more….

Thats all folks!! :))

Thanks for all these lovely pictures of Harlow Carr. It's been several years since I was there, but now I want to go again!.
Just read about your neighbour who cut down the shade-giving tree. I've had the same experience. My neighbour cut several trees down, including a Rowan near my gate which I was particularly fond of.
My garden now has more light, and is, I guess, better for it, as it has lots of trees that can't be cut down overshadowing it anyway.

There have been lots of changes over the past few years; its well worth a return visit.
Its a shame about the Rowan.....

Hoping to move to Yorkshire coast next year, so it'll be a bit nearer. I loved the alpine pictures too.
