Last year, the Garden marked the Olympics and Golden Jubilee with colour-rich annual meadows which proved very popular with visitors. This year we have made use of an area of bare earth under a newly established boundary planting of silver limes. A classic wildflower mix chosen for a balance of colour and long season of interest.
It's hard to know whether the visitors or the bees and butterflies are enjoying it more! We are very grateful to Dr Karen van Oostrum, former Head of Education here, and her family, who made the new silver lime boundary planting possible through a generous donation, because they 'love the Garden'. Hurrah.
