June to July
The light becomes stronger at this time of year and the colours likewise are more vibrant. There is so much to see - particularly roses and an increasing number of border plants - achilleas, aconitums, delphiniums, galega, herbaceous clematis, thalictrums, salvias, foxgloves and many more. We have roses everywhere - in borders, as specimen plantings, up and over walls, up trees and, of course in the Rose Garden, the Rose Bank and the Rose Walk. For those seeking shade on hot days, there are seats from where the quieter and calmer parts of the garden can also be enjoyed.
