On the 11th April we excitedly left home to make the short journey to our nearest NGS garden in the village of Edge. This was the first visit to a National Garden Scheme garden for many months due to lockdowns caused by Covid 19. We have visited Edge Villa many times before as owners/gardeners Chris and Bill are friends and they always have good plants for sale.
Come with us as we take a leisurely stroll on a bright spring afternoon. This first set of photos illustrates the essence of the garden, interesting plants, humour, views and ideas.
The second set of pictures shows a wide view across to the greenhouse from the pond area, plus a look at some interesting plant combinations.
We next move on to further plant images.
I feature some of the many beautiful trees enhancing the garden, including a double flowered prunus and a flaked bark acer. The pond sits at the lowest point of the garden and has a great viewing seat. The sculpture of two metal figures look as if they are deep in conversation about the pond.
This is the penultimate set of photos all concerning the area slightly up from the pond.
Little cameos and silver-grey foliaged plants feature below to finish our journey in pictures.
So there we have it, sharing our visit to Edge Villa. We plan to visit another NGS garden in a few weeks again owned and gardened by gardening friends, Ruthall Manor.
