Blossom watch at The Argory
Colour is starting to bloom at The Argory with the rampant blue trailing wisteria, blazing yellow Kerria and not forgetting the foxgloves and cowslips along the boardwalk. There’s always something new to discover on a spring visit.
On arrival pick up a property map and head off into the Rose Garden, look along the wall and see the Wisteria (chinese wisteria) with its rampant blue trailing flowers. Head out to the east of the house and catch a glimpse of the Clematis Montana Rubens, the Queen of the climbers with their bronzy leaves and pink flowers.
After this, take a stroll around the estate and spot some old hybrid rhododendrons in full bloom. The boardwalk has an array of foxgloves and cowslips on either side for you to admire.
The springtime blooms also produce scents, which you may pick up on. If you identify a sweet, cherry or almond aroma on the estate, that will be the laurel. This is commonly used as hedging and is prevalent throughout The Argory grounds.
