Morton Hall Gardens

May 14th 2019

14th May dawned bright and warm for the visit to Morton Hall Gardens where we were met by Harry Green, the Head Gardener who gave a brief history of the house and site followed by a tour of the garden. This began with the meadow, covered in various wild flowers and two recently introduced varieties of Camassia together with trees planted to flower at different times of the year. On to the Japanese garden with its tea house and wonderful woodland rockery. After walking round the pond and following the winding watercourse above, we emerged to see below a listed Chestnut tree. An arched gateway took us to the Kitchen Garden planted ornamentally but purposefully to provide not only vegetables but also fruit from the glasshouses. The tour concluded in the West Garden planted to enhance the spectacular view over the Worcestershire countryside, followed by a delicious cream tea in the Garden Café.
