We all meet up at Rockcliffe Gardens, where Emma Keswick the owner and designer of the garden showed us round. It is a stunning garden even in the rather damp weather that greeted us at the start of the visit.
Andrew Tolman, the visit organiser very kindly treated attendees to a drink and tour of the garden. He also gave out some information about his new venture Arthur & Strange Ltd, a company ‘passionate about topiary, tools and sundries’.
At Pigeon House we were treated to tea & coffee and some wonderful cake by the owners who also explained how they manage the garden after which we were able to enjoy the garden, wondering its length along the stream.
On the walk to the last garden other topiary in the village was spotted.
Village Farm House
The final garden of the visit to Gloucestershire was Village Farm House.
Thanks to Andrew Tolman for arranging the selection of gardens in Gloucestershire which once again proved to a stunning & varied selection.
