This afternoon I joined in a tour of Greenbank Garden led by the resident Head Gardener. Key focus was hints and tips on herbaceous perennials. The tour was well attended. The sunshine and colours combined to provide a very pleasant experience.

The house and garden date from 1771 with the (walled) garden originally designed for fruit and vegetable growing. The soil is heavy clay but over the years has become workable through addition of humus and lime.

There are over 100 species of Bergenias and named cultivars in the garden.
