There will be a range of exciting garden sculptures from Five Two Designs too.

In late summer, there is still plenty of colour in the Garden, with Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’, Miscanthus sinensis and Pennisetum ‘Hameln’ looking particularly lovely in the late afternoon sun. The Midsummer Border, still colourful despite its name, is home to Helenium ‘Moerheim Beauty’, Verbena bonariensis, Gold Standard roses, Calamagrostis brachytricha, Sedum ‘Marchants Best Red’, crocosmias as well as Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Diabolo’, while white Japanese anemones take over in the White Garden.
Josephine’s Way is the place to see selections of carex, pennisetum and panicum looking their best, interplanted with gorgeous ‘Mystic Series’ dahlias.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy 40 sculptures being exhibited throughout the Garden until the end of September, and there are panoramic views over the lakes and 200 acres of rolling parkland to enjoy.
