The garden of David Wheeler and Simon Dorrell was open yesterday to coincide with a push for the Presteigne Festival which takes place at the end of August. Lovely garden, but I hope that they got a bulk price on their purchase of garden benches – there must be at least 20 of them in the 3 acre garden.
There’s some great planting combinations at Bryan’s Ground. Box edged parterre borders with fennel and simple yellow day lillies, and lots and lots of iris sibirica.
And good tea and cake as well.
