May to June

 

Late spring is that exciting period when the garden is about to burst into full colour and yet everything still has that wonderful freshness, especially the foliage.  So the main players at this stage are irises, lupins, alliums, nepeta, euphorbias, paeonies, salvias, clematis and early roses.   As the bluebells in the wood fade, the adjacent Wildflower Meadow starts to come into its own.   In the garden the Water Garden is at its best and the borders begin to look abundant.
