On Friday 11th August, member Nigel Eaton invited the Branch to an evening visit to Harlow Carr. Even better, Nigel had arranged a talk and garden tour by Matt Brewer.
Matt is leading a Key Investment Project to redevelop the woodland at the far side from the garden’s entrance. The idea is to revamp the woodland, keeping its essential character, but injecting a herbaceous edging to paths though it. The project is scheduled to take five years.
Though the weather wasn’t perfect, rain held off for most of the evening, and Matt’s talk added an extra level of interest to what is always a fascinating garden.
