Outing to Lucy Boston's Garden, The Manor at Hemingford Grey on Tuesday 21 June 2016

Hemingford manor

 

A small group of BGA members visited Lucy Boston's Garden in Hemingford Grey. We were lucky with the weather - it stayed dry and bright although the weather had been very unpredictable.

Diana Boston gave us an informative introduction to the history of the house and the gardens and made herself available for questions about the plants as we all walked around the garden in the evening sun. A very pleasant and relaxing place, the gardens are brimming with well known cottage perennials and beautiful old roses. The topiary was very inspiring and shown to its best effect against the low evening sun.

Definitely an outing to be recommended if you get the opportunity.
