Visit to Rosemoor RHS Garden during our visit to Devon.

15 comments


Firstly,many apologies for not responding yet to your kind comments since last week…we were able to visit our friends in Devon for a few days.During our stay there we had a pre booked day at Rosemoor….have always wanted to visit it but something has always prevented it.
The weather was glorious not too hot.The pre ordered lunch boxes were also successful, no queuing for lunch.The hessian bags will be very useful.There were many seats dotted throughout the garden to rest on too.
The following photos are taken of different areas ,Mediterranean, Woodland and the Lake. Hope you enjoy.

Overlichened seat!

Tibouchina urvilleana (Princess flower) very pretty,sprawling shrub is the penultimate photo.

Spindle tree.

This and Harlow Carr near Harrogate are my 2 favourite RHS gardens. We've been here a few times over the years, usually returning from hols in the West Country and love it in all seasons. You have caught it at a very beautiful time of year.

Thank you for the tour. Very colourful in this time of year.
Looks like someone took lots of care in plant shapes and colour combination when designing this garden.
It is a candy for an eye. Like yours Meadowland......on smaller scale.
