What a spectacular weekend to visit our garden! Today, Bank Holiday Monday, is your last chance this year to tour our almost 1 mile path through our landscaped valley & gardens. (If you’re a group of 10 or more a private tour can be arranged until the end of July.) Open today, Bank Holiday Monday 12 noon to 5pm. Come and spoil yourself with Homemade Cakes and Devon Cream Teas!

Clematis montana are at their peak! We’ve many of them through whites to pinks and soft reds, scrambling through trees, over the Japanese Pavilion and often hanging languidly down from high branches, swaying in the breeze. There’s still a bit of damage from very late frosts and the horrendous hailstorm of some weeks ago, but you’d have to look hard to notice it. In fact, our garden is full of late spring colour for our openings this coming Bank Holiday weekend…..

A host of planting is underway to bring our garden into a unified beauty for our openings in around 10 days time… But is it the weather for planting out? Hot, dry and sunny. The answer must be “no”. Does opening a private garden to the public (for charity) mean that common sense in gardening takes second place? The National Garden Scheme have just sent us a Certificate announcing that we have so far raised £10,434.50 for charities. So we must be doing something right!

Disaster….. The Otter has found our new pond and is helping itself to our fish! It seems as though another Colditz type barrier is the only solution. We already have a comprehensive electric fence around our hillside to keep our free range hens secure from foxes and badgers… Do we really want another wire round our pond, this time electrified, instead of the plain wire to deter Herons?
