Take a trip to RHS Rosemoor near Torrington at any time of the year and you are guaranteed a great day out. Whilst it is a true plantsman’s garden there’s always plenty to keep everyone amused with workshops, children’s activities and an award winning garden restaurant where they cook fresh fruit and vegetables grown in the gardens. There’s a wonderful plant nursery too with a very diverse selection of plants and shrubs for sale.
It’s great to explore the varied garden spaces which change with the seasons and contrast each other beautifully. The traditional cottage garden with its brick pathways and beds crammed with a classic mix of flowering shrubs, perennials, annuals and biennials contrasts with the hot garden, where in summer the vibrant colours and ornamental grasses are at their peak. The peace and tranquillity of the woodland garden with its huge variety of ornamental woodland trees and shrubs is a joy.
For those who have difficulty walking there are wheelchairs and all terrain Tramper mobility buggies to hire for a small fee.
It’s worth having a look at Rosemoor Garden’s What’s On Guide, as there are always some really interesting events happening throughout the year too.
