Visit to Lambley Garden and Nursery

On Saturday, 3rd March, we had arranged a visit by the Club to Lambley Nursery at Ascot.

Thanks to Jo with her bigger car and good air conditioning (it was 30deg even over there!) Peggy, Gill, Barbara and I were chauffeured in comfort.

We met up with Judy and Philip at the Nursery and had a good wander around.  Some of the plants are doing very well over there.  I don’t think it has been quite as dry as we have had and he does water.  It was really lovely to walk on green grass beneath the avenue of pear trees (Pyrus valiant).

A few purchases later – the Hopley’s purchased their namesake plant (Origanum laevigatum ‘Hopley’s’) – and we were off to Creswick for a picnic lunch.

A very pleasant day, just a shame there was not more people with us.

Yellow Clematis – lovely seed heads – with red salvia.
