Hidcote Manor

We recently visited Hidcote in North Gloucestershire, a National Trust property near Evesham with stunning gardens bringing together plants from all over the world.

It was put together around a hundred years ago by Major Lawrence Johnson, an American plant-hunter and horticulturist. The story of the garden of ‘rooms’ and the life of it’s creator, Johnson are told on the national Trust website. There is a small house with just a couple of rooms open and a lovely little cafe, but this visit is all about getting lost in these beautiful gardens.

Here are just a few pics of some of my favourite plants spotted on the visit, I won’t attempt to identify them, but you can do that in the comments if you like. There were some incredible varieties of hydrangea that really took my eye and a fantastic kitchen garden.

Hope you enjoy these pics.
