Late Summer Borders are looking glorious at the Dorothy Clive Garden (4th September 2012)

Late Summer Borders are looking glorious at the Dorothy Clive Garden

The Dorothy Clive Garden is currently hosting glorious late summer borders, which are situated close to the garden tearoom.

The garden, which has historically been known as a predominantly ‘spring garden’, have been diversified over the last three years to provide an extended season of interest, which continues into summer and early autumn. This includes late summer borders and a new Rose Walk displaying a variety of David Austin roses, mixed herbaceous perennials throughout a cottage rose and cool borders, amongst other projects.

Deputy Curator, Margaret Barry, said 'We have worked hard to diversify the garden to be attractive to visitors all year round.  Late summer is an excellent time to visit the garden with our seasonal tropical borders awash with colour, vibrancy and ideas to take home. A riot of colour is provided by plants such as crocosmia, salvias, dahlias, cannas and Echinacea.’

The garden is open from 10.00am to 5.30pm, seven days a week until Sunday 30th September 2012. The garden will then be open every weekend in October from 10am to 4pm.
