Quite a convoy of cars left Homebase on a beautiful sunny May afternoon to visit Bitsmorton Court Gardens. What a sight welcomed us. A beautiful Grade 1 listed medieval manor house set in a moat, with water fed from the Malvern Hills. The Hills were the backdrop to the lovely gardens.
The gardens were beautiful but there were a few favourite parts of the garden – magnificent white wisteria trees in full bloom, a wonderful laburnum arch and a lean to greenhouse chock a block with the most colourful pelargoniums.
The mandatory tea and cake was served on the sunny terrace. Even the cakes, home baked that morning, warranted superlatives.
In all, a great first 2019 visit for the Garden Group.

Despite the changeable weather we much enjoyed our visit to the four-acre garden at Stockton Bury. The garden area was mainly pasture until the present four-acre garden, home to a medieval pigeon house, kitchen garden, water gardens, well-planted borders and plant sales, was created by Raymond Treasure and Gordon Fenn. The Victorian kitchen garden remains an attractive feature with lots of secret hidden areas to explore. The barn café provided the tea and a selection of delicious cakes, ensuring we had a successful visit.

Please note that all trips must be booked and paid for in advance. Members will be provided with more detailed information on all meetings via email or phone.

New members are always welcome
