Arley Hall Garden Festival

On sunday 26th June I visited Arley Hall garden festival with my sisters, Jane, Helen and Diane, and my friend Tracy. A hot sunny day so very lucky with the weather.
Arley Hall is in Northwich and is an impressive stately home surrounded by beautiful gardens, most noted for its herbaceous borders which are peaking at this time of year.

There are eight acres of formal gardens and a plant nursery. Every year they hold a garden festival which includes a floral marquee, food festival and craft market. there are lots of plants for sale and you get chance to have tours round the gardens.
There is an impressive walled garden.

This is a lovely plant combination.

The thistle looks amazing.
This is the herbaceous border which is very popular with the visitors.

My favourite place the kitchen garden
