RHS Rosemoor

In 1988, Lady Anne Palmer (daughter of Robert Horace Walpole)

 gave Rosemoor to the RHS.

This consisted of the house, an 8 acre garden and 32 acres of pastureland.

Thankfully, we live near enough to Rosemoor, to pay regular visits!

Who would have thought that, in spite of the heavy clay soil

 and in such a short space of time, this stunningly

beautiful garden would soon be drawing hundreds of visitors every day?

I never tire of visiting RHS Rosemoor, just as I never used to tire of visiting

 RHS Wisley.  Both are quite different and yet both inspire, in their own unique way.

   Do enjoy a wander with me!
