On a hot day, less windy than it has been, I visited RHS Hyde Hall. Dr and Mrs Robinson bought Hyde Hall Farm in 1955 and a determined Mrs Robinson started gardening – what an extraordinary achievement – I think they would be pleased with the results today, and the pleasure they are giving to so many people. I have visited before, and at each visit there are different, wonderful, sights.
There were beautiful clematis in the rose garden and over the pergola.
Gaura Lindheimerei are beautiful, airy plants and at Hyde Hall they are massed in tubs and amongst the grasses – lovely.
Grasses are massed and looking gorgeous: lots of Stipa Tenuissima, Miscanthus, Stipa Gigantea, Carex, Anemanthele.
And a few weeks ago there would have been a lot of purple – the salvias were over, as were the alliums – but the sedums are promising a good autumn show!
