Snowdrop Spectacular

 Felley Priory

 

 

 

After such a wet winter, gardens have not always been at the forefront of our minds, but Rempstone Garden Group has

been busy planning a varied and wide ranging variety of visits throughout the year. 

 

There was a real taste of early spring when members drove  to the north of Nottinghamshire to visit the  wonderful gardens at Felley Priory for their February visit.

 

Renowned for its snowdrops, Felley is only a short distance from the M1 motorway and the house and its 2.5 acre garden lies hidden in the rolling countryside. With its own nursery and  excellent tea room it was an afternoon that made the winter seem that bit shorter.

 

It is a garden that has something to offer throught the year.  If you missed the visit or would like to find out more click Felley Priory

 

 

 
 

 


 

 

2014 - A Gardening Year

 

Last year was ten years since Rempstone Garden Group was formed and members were celebrating their first decade with a varied programme.  The visit to Felley Priory followed on from the planning meeting and then mid-February saw a well attended and enjoyable lunch in the Village Hall. Memories of visits from 2013 were brought back with a series of projected images.

Batsford A Hidden Gem in the Cotswolds

 

 

 Sunshine & showers did nothing to deter Garden Group members who made the trip down the Old Fosse Way to visit Batsford Arboretum near Moreton-in-Marsh for the final visit of 2013.

 

The expert tour guide outlined the development of the Arboretum which stands in 55 acres and is  renowned for its Japanese Maples, Acers and Pines

 


 

Roses All The Way

 

Rempstone Garden Group enjoyed a perfect summer afternoon at David Austen Roses .The late spring meant that the roses were just coming into their full glory and looked their best in beautiful sunshine.

 

With over 900 different varieties set in two acres the gardens showed the blooms to perfection.  The policy of planting the exuberant roses  contained in formal edged borders, in tubs and climbing against walls showed how to display the roses at their best and has led to David Austen Roses becoming  world famous and winners of many awards from the most prestigious flower shows including Chelsea.

 

 

 

 

The visit included a talk by one of the knowledgable guides on the development of the nursery from farm land and highlighted the  artistic talents of the late Mrs Austen. Following the talk there was a chance to wander at leisure around the gardens, enjoy a cream tea and return home bearing many beautiful blooms.
