Flowers in the orchard
There is a small orchard in the gardens here, where the garden team leave the grass to grow to encourage wild flowers, and mow a couple of paths through the centre. At the moment the best wild flowers to see are Martagon lilies, a native to North West Europe and North West Asia, and the ox-eye daisy (one of 29 common names listed for it by the RHS), which is our largest native member of the daisy family.
Eventually the grass will have to be cut, so come along and enjoy the flower-filled orchard and explore the paths through weaving through while it's at its best.
