We start at midday by visiting the Dower House with a tour of the garden by the owner and author of ‘The Apprehensive Gardener‘ Griselda Kerr. The garden takes advantage of its sloping site with paths passing through a copious variety of flowers, shrubs and trees to a river below, with topiary and formal hedging cleverly providing punctuation. After lunch we visit the garden and park of Melbourne Hall.
After lunch there is Felly Priory, whose topiary has been described by members as mesmerising and heavenly. An early tea will be taken to allow for a timely departure.
