On a hot day, less windy than it has been, I visited RHS Hyde Hall.
History of 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.
The garden today
There were beautiful clematis in the rose garden and over the pergola.
In the Hilltop Garden, in the original garden, I loved the ‘alcoves’ in different colours – soft yellows, vibrant oranges, and so on.
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!
RHS Hyde Hall is a beautiful garden – do visit!
