RHS Rosemoor

On June 27th there was a day trip to RHS Rosemoor near Great Torrington, an outstanding very large garden in a North Devon valley.  The day will give plenty of time to wander around these gardens, purchase from their shop and enjoy lunch or afternoon tea in the large cafe/restaurant.  As we are affiliated to the RHS entry to the gardens will be free.

2018

Two trips took place in 2018

Lower Severalls Garden & Nursery situated near Crewkerne in Somerset.  An afternoon trip, to include a cream tea, to this cottage garden style venue.  This took place on Wednesday June 20th 2018 in the afternoon.

We had two trips in 2017, both followed on from speakers who came to Mere Garden Club.

Bristol University Botanic Garden  Following February’s excellent talk by Nick Wray, the curator of this garden which is situated north of Bristol, we organised a visit to this exceptional garden on Wednesday July 19th 2017.

The Walled Garden at Longleat  We visited this garden on August 16th, when we sampled the huge variety of Tomatoes and other fruit grown by Matt Simpson.
