In the garden this week

The gardens are now entering its late Spring phase, with deciduous azaleas in a range of colours in full bloom. Our wildflower meadow near the entrance with a succession of species starting flower over the coming weeks, and providing an essential resource for local insects. Late flowering Rhododendrons are blooming, particularly deep orange and pink forms, as well are many of our Viburnums showing fantastic white flowers in a range of types. Well worth getting up to the Bog Garden where Iris and Primulas are looking stunning! The Hardy Hybrid collection in Ant Wood are in full bloom.

"What a fantastic garden"

We have had a busy couple of months in the garden with lots of lovely visitors and groups enjoying the Spring colour and hospitality of the Teahouse. It makes it so rewarding for the gardeners and Teahouse staff when we receive such lovely reviews after a visit. Here are just a few of the comments we've received.

Rhododendron 'Cynthia' one of Ramster's signature Rhododendrons is in full bloom, lining the drive with rich pink flowers, and dotted throughout the garden. The Azalea garden is full of colour with the Hyde Azalea bed near Acer Walk continuing to look particularly good. The tall pink spires of the candelabra primula, Primula pulverulenta are looking fantastic through the Bog Garden. Well worth a look! And don't forget we are celebrating 90 years of being open for the Natonal Garden Scheme. So come and see us and support the wonderful charities who are helped by the NGS.

Celebrating 90 years of the National Garden Scheme

Gardeners World visit Ramster Garden

We were so pleased to welcome Gardeners World and Rachel de Thame to Ramster Garden this week. They were here to film our stunning collection of Rhododendrons and Azalea's. The segment should be on air later this month. We'll let you know as soon as we do!

The Hyde Azalea collection & plant sales

It was a relief for the gardeners to see some rain this weekend, and a delight for us this morning to see the garden bathed in sunshine. The Hyde collection in the Azalea garden is looking beautiful with 10-12 different types blooming. The bluebells are still holding on much to our surprise. Plan your visit this week! If you are feeling inspired after a visit to the gardens, we do also have a handpicked selection of plants available for sale outside the Teahouse. Card payments are accepted.
