I was looking through some of my images over the weekend and thought I’d share some more from my trip to Loseley Park earlier this year.

These are more focused on the flowers and planting, but thought it might be nice to be reminded of the gorgeous summer weather we had.  I remember it being absolutely scorching on the day, we were melting before 10am!

Savill Garden – A Royal Landscape

0 Written by Lisa on 26th Jul 2011 in Inspiration

A week or so ago I went to Savill Garden with Rona Wheeldon of Flowerona to see the new Rose Garden which was designed by Andrew Wilson and opened for the first time earlier this year.  Because of the challenging weather conditions we’ve had this year, the hot dry spring and the warm wet spell over the last month, unfortunately the roses were past their best – if we’d managed to get there a month ago, I think we would have seen a much more impressive display.

My visit to Loseley Park Garden was a little later than anticipated this month, but it certainly made for a more dramatic change than I had been expecting.  It has been 6 weeks since my last visit to the garden, which doesn’t sound long, but in the world of perennial planting it can make a huge difference to the overall look and feel of a space.
