Sarah Raven’s Gardens at Perch Hill – Open Day 18.7.20

Lovely to visit @sarahravenperchhill garden open day yesterday.

Gorgeous sunny afternoon showed the garden at its best.

Highlights included the amazing cutting gardens, the beautiful cool Oast courtyard with towering fig and wonderfully scented Arabian Jasmine (Jasminum sambac) along with a stunning Hydrangea arborescens “incrediball”.

A wonderful glasshouse bursting with produce sits above a cleverly laid out kitchen garden with raised beds capitalising on the sunny steep south-facing slope.

A multitude of insects and wildlife testament to the work done here on Biodiversity, including a rare siting if a Hummingbird hawkmoth, and a lush meadow enveloping a steamer chair.

Gorgeous.

Seeds and useful tools, vases, planters, books etc all on sale at the socially distanced shop.

Well worth a visit if you can.
