RHS Chelsea and the HPS
I am sure that some of you will have heard by now that the Worcester Group were awarded a Silver-Gilt medal for their display at Chelsea today, It was a lovely stand and congratulations to them all.
The team were filmed during the planning and make up of the stand, and we are told that there is a strong possibility that the HPS will be on television this Thursday evening BBC2 as part of the 8.00pm Chelsea coverage.
Cerne Abbas Open Gardens Coach Trip – 18th of June
There is something to suit everyone in this selection of around 30 gardens opening over the weekend for charity. Highlights include the garden at Cerne River Cottage, designed and planted by Chelsea gold medallist Nick Williams-Ellis. His designs characterise many of the Cerne Abbas gardens. This natural garden is bordered by trees and shrubs with a beautiful and colourful bog garden running along the south side. Don’t miss the lilies, persicaria, filipendula and the statuesque Gunnera manicata alongside the river. Two white bridges link the separate parts of the garden providing a Monet feel to the overall.
Lunchtime meals may be obtained in the local pubs or teashop. The Squibb Garden next to the church is open all day and is a good place to picnic. Plant stalls in the village square.
