Pratsham Grange Garden Visit – FULL

7th August 2019 - 7th August 2019 , 18:00 - 20:30

We are delighted to have been invited to make a return visit to Pratsham Grange garden, a 5 acre garden in Holmbury St Mary, by the owners Alan and Felicity Comber. The garden, which is divided into three sections, has a distinct mathematical order to it each section having its own flavour, yet feeling very much part of a unified design.

One section contains beds of scented roses in various geometrical shapes together with herbaceous borders while rows of neatly clipped yews delineate the avenue running through it. In addition there is an abundance of other plants, including, in August, crocosima and asters. Another section contains a spiralling buxus knot garden interspersed with herbs, fruit trees and a cutting flower garden. In the third section there are two ponds joined by a cascading stream and beds containing fuchsias and massed hydrangeas in blue, mauve and white tones.

Our August visit will show the colour in the garden at its best. At that time, in the words of Alan Comber “the roses produce their second blooming, the fuchsias are spectacular, the hydrangeas are in vivid hues, the flower picking garden is plentiful, the herbaceous borders are full of flowering plants and there may even be an autumn raspberry or two to taste”.

The cost will be £18 for members and £20 for non-members which includes a donation in aid of GRACE, a cancer related charity. Refreshments including wine, soft drinks and snacks will be provided.

Booking is essential. If you would like to join us, please book your place online at the bottom of this page. Alternatively please complete and return the downloadable slip here below before Thursday 1st August 2019. Full event details will be sent to you closer to the event date.
