July in the Garden

By | Garden

July in the garden is always a busy time at Teasses not only are we maintaining the garden but we are also busy welcoming visitors to the garden. This July we have had several groups and a return visits from the Garden Society of America. The Walled Garden is looking fantastic and blooming bountifully. Our borders planted in the late winter have established particularly well with the red border looking full and vibrant. Monarda ‘Cambridge Scarlet’, Penstemon ‘Southgate Gem’, Sanguisorba officinalis all look fantastic in the border together. The hot box continues to provide organic vegetables; carrots, leeks and golden beetroot. Dahlias are just beginning to bloom in the walled garden, we are hopeful for a similar display as last year. The heavy scent of hundreds of sweet peas fill the summer air especially in the evening.

The formal gardens around the house are stunning at this time of year with billowing clouds of Campanula ‘Pritchard’s Variety’ filling every space. Roses in the sundial garden smell heavily, the buds of Filipendula ‘Rubra’ are waiting to burst. Tropaeolum speciosum provides a vibrant back drop in the garden. The surviving Cardiocrinums are in full heavily scented bloom in Sir Fraser’s Garden. In the greenhouse the enormous trumpets of Brugmansia versicolor also fill the greenhouse with a perfume like no-other.
