Building a large garden on a budget

Bressingham Gardens Sunday 13 July 2014

Its probably 15 years since I last went to Bressingham Gardens, and I guess that I have never been in mid July before – definitely the best time to see the gardens in full flow – and consequently I thoroughly enjoyed my day out, and came away with lots of photos of plants with notes of colours and heights that will be ideal for my garden. There are thousands of different varieties of herbaceous perennials on show, and lots of trees too, especially ornamental conifers planted nearly half a century ago and now mature.

Here are some broad views to give a feel of the style and layout of planting.

Several of the island beds had a strip-path of woodchip so that you can walk through the bed and see the plants from a different angle.
