My Dream Garden (Ssinghurst Castle Garden UK)

Post by Farhan Ahmed » August 25th, 2013, 6:55 pm

Classic English Cottage Garden, imitated by thousands in futile attempts. Composed of 10 Separate Sub-Gardens. Most famous of which is White Garden.
Careful haphazardness, free flowing, with each garden covering a separate theme. The "idea" of "Home and Garden".

Beautiful.

It is one of the top ten English gardens to visit in the UK, when I visited I was fascinated with the way that they had designed the gardens s a series of rooms with each one having their own beauty. For me the most memorable was the white garden.

A few days ago we visited RHS gardens at Harlow Carr, in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. I will upload some of the pictures for you. It took us all day as there are over 27 acres of grounds. Including a learning centre, greenhouses, bee apiary, woodland gardens and the Queen Mothers Lake

Newton, someone living in Glasgow had a lot of praise for the Botanical Garden there & recommended a visit. Regrettably,I couldn't manage it, though a few years back I happened to be staying on its boundary.Have you seen it or heard about it?
