Last week I visited Tom Stuart-Smith’s garden in Hertfordshire. I caught it just in time as the prairie garden was coming to an end BUT there were still a lot of wonderful specimens and also some Rudbeckia seedheads which were magnificent in their own right. This day was organised by the Garden Museum at Lambeth Palace. If you are not a member you might like to think about it as you can see they organise quite a few interesting visits and lectures: http://www.gardenmuseum.org.uk/page/garden-open-days
Tom has planted a wealth of fabulous grasses and fabulous rare plants which are tall and dramatic. Here are just a few of the sights that I saw.
And here are some of the exceptional plants:
Aster novae-angliae Septemberubin
Liatris carioda alba
Rudbeckia fullllllllgida Deamii
Rudbeckian maxima seedheads
