If you didn’t take part in Open Gardens Day this is your chance to see what you missed. If you did visit the Gardens that were open on the day we hope these articles will remind you of some of the beautiful plants, shrubs and trees – not to mention all the hard work that goes into creating a garden.

Five gardens were open to the public on Open Gardens Day, one of them being the garden at English & More Language Centre. Plants and refreshments were also on sale here, as the Centre was originally a hotel so has plenty of space for people.

It also has a mature garden with some interesting plants.

One great finds within their garden was of hemerocallis or day lilies. These are common in the UK, but hard to find here.

We’ll be begging a few rhizomes from English & More as soon as their flowering season is over.

Meanwhile we’d like to thank English & More for letting their garden be used for Open Gardens Day and for sponsoring the drinks sold on the refreshment stall.

And the picture above is of the plant stall in their garden which added so much glorious colour to the event.
