Had a lovely day at the Himalayan Garden & Sculpture Park yesterday. No passport required as the gardens are nowhere near the Himalayas, instead being situated at The Hutts, Grewelthorpe which is near Ripon. I'll blog about that another time, when I've sorted out the photos taken.
In the meanwhile, why not start planning ahead for seed planting next year? Yeah, I know that sounds over-eager, but Fothergill's are having a seed sale with dozens and dozens of varieties on offer at £1.00 per pack. There're some fantastic bargains to be had, especially if you order with a friend or two and split the packs between you. I've overindulged a tad with the credit card - oops! - but it was too good a chance to miss. Especially when postage & packing only added a measly £1.95 to the overall total.
So whether you're after Rudbeckia, Honesty, Asters, Lupins, Hellebore Christmas Roses, Bok Choi, Basil, tomatoes or chillis, Caraway or Chard seeds, head to http://www.mr-fothergills.co.uk which stocks last.
Moved from a garden-less city flat in the South West to a Yorkshire village in 2016. I now have a garden ... of sorts.
