RHS Hyde Hall, Rettendon, Chelmsford, CM3 8ET
Saturday, 17th June 2017
Experience the horticultural gem that is RHS Garden Hyde Hall with fantastic panoramic views and an estate that is constantly evolving. The garden boasts an eclectic range of inspirational horticultural styles from traditional to modern, providing interest and colour, whatever the weather or time of year. We will be visiting on Rose Weekend with guided walks and talks around the roses in the garden, roses to buy in the shop, rose experts on hand to give advice and rose themed stalls to wander around. In fact (cue for song) everything’s coming up roses for our visit! As well as a rosy glow over the proceedings, visitors can enjoy the Hilltop Garden, quintessentially English with ponds, borders and lush green lawns; the Robinson Garden, a truly plantsman’s garden with more unusual species; the Queen Mother’s Garden with its informal, relaxed, planting style; and much much more. New for 2017 is the Global Vegetable Garden which showcases fruit and vegetables from around the world.
Cost: All groups £17.00 (NB entry is free at Hyde Hall as we are using our associate membership)
Departure: Cranley Gardens: 09.15 / Pages Lane: 09.30
