On a wet dull day in mid-May we made our way to the north of our county, Shropshire to visit the second NGS garden of the year, Pooh Corner owned and gardened by our friend and fellow Hardy Plants Society member, Sue. This is a garden that is well thought of by fellow Hardy Plant Society members and we had wanted to visit for a while. Sadly circumstances hadn’t allowed until now. It is situated on a modern estate in the town of St. Martins and is like an oasis among roads and other houses.
Straight away we found interesting plants often in great plant communities.
The garden with its amusing name showed off the gardener’s sense of humour along the many paths.
Hidden away among plants we were delighted to find some interesting and varied sculptural pieces.
Rain had been almost forgotten by the time we had explored much of the garden and we really enjoyed wandering its many narrow paths taking us amongst the plants.
What a lovely way to spend a disappointingly damp day out. We certainly felt much better for our time in this great little garden.
