I think my actual overall favourite was the display by Hortisculptures at the main entrance.

A close second was this garden by West Cork designer Anne Hamilton

THE RAIN GARDEN, by Jane McCorkell


  1. Thanks for the tour, I could never see too many garden shows, I always see something I like.

  2. The Hortisculptures really appeal to me.

  3. What a wonderful display of gardens! I like the first one, too. It is so fanciful; somehow it reminds me of Alice in Wonderland!

  4. The first display looks like a set from a fantasy moovie. So whimsical.
    Your photoshopped gunneras crept over everything the way our kudzu vine does for real. Kudzu might grow over you while you sleep, but at least it has no spikes. The gunneras look beautiful but threatening. Yikes

  5. the felicia amelloides looks good...

  6. Thanks for the tour Sunny :) That dry stone walling looks so precise and the softness of the blue blooms really sets it off beautifully!

  7. Thank you so much for this! absolutely enchanting...

  8. Hello,

  9. The Hortisculptures display is amazing! Thanks for sharing the tour with us.
