A glorious morning at Loseley Park – The Rose, Herb and Organic Vegetable Gardens4 Written by Lisa on 26th Jul 2013 in Inspiration
This is my final post about my visit to Loseley Park last week. If you missed my earlier posts about The White Garden, Flower Garden and long water pond, you will find these at the bottom of this one.
This picture is taken in the herb garden, looking back towards the house. The hollyhocks were absolutely stunning – we timed our visit perfectly for those!
The Herb garden is home to over 200 herbs which have either culinary, medicinal, household or decorative qualities.
The Organic Vegetable Garden is a fully functional and productive garden, but equally as attractive.
The star of the day here were the red poppies which were sending the bees into quite a spin…
…and I had to mention the globe artichokes, one of my absolute favourite vegetables…
The roses in The Rose Garden were fabulous this year and I’ve noticed that they seem to be healthy everywhere, probably due to the dry and hot weather.
It was a bit bright by the time we got to take photographs here, but I hope you can imagine the scent that hits you as you walk through.
Burney, the head gardener, was busy deadheading when we left…rather him than me!
