I'm Sue Liassides and for 2016 I am joining Tony and the Gardens to Visit team, to offer some timely tips and jottings relating to gardens, gardening, plants and all things horticultural.
First though, let me introduce myself ...
In September, I was able to take a three day break visiting gardens in the Cotswolds and what a feast for the senses it is. Kiftsgate, Sezincote and Hidcote, each outstanding in their own individual way, made for an unforgettable weekend.
Perhaps the best known of them is Hidcote Manor Garden – formerly the home of Laurence Johnston and now owned by The National Trust. The first view of Hidcote, beneath the Cedar tree right through to ‘Heaven’s Gate’, sets the scene for what really is a remarkable garden.
In the Old Garden there is a heavenly mix of summer perennials with many fluffy, feminine colours and this leads into the White Garden – where white Phlox, set against evergreen box topiary, are complimented by gorgeous billowing clumps of Hydrangea serrata.
The Maple Garden is delightful with Acer palmatum ‘Dissectum Atropurpureum’ as the centre piece, however, perhaps my favourite garden was the Red Garden, which is stunning.
Sue's Photo of the Month
"The canals or paths dividing the garden into four equal parts represent the four rivers of life and their crossing, marked by an octagonal fountain, is a symbol of the meeting of humanity and God."
