Last year, I visited an enchanting garden in Northumberland at Belsay Hall and Castle. It is a two-hour drive from where I live, so quite a day out, but as before it was well worth the trip. I also came across a new addition for my ornamental garden.
The hosta might not like the conditions in my garden as it could be too hot and dry when it’s a good day in summer – and the soil might be too wet the rest of the time. However, under the apple tree, where the soil has been conditioned with lots of manure, it’s possibly okay.
Anyway, it would be a shame not to show you the Quarry Garden at Belsay, which I am so taken with, so here a few shots from today.
