Holehird Gardens in July: 3 things to look out for when you visit:

  1. The National Collection of astilbe is at its best in July.  The long astilbe beds, with their massed planting in many shades of pink, red and white, form a tapestry of colour not to be missed.
  2. The Walled Garden is full of colour throughout the summer.  The spectacular dark blue Delphinium 'Cassius' is one of the current stars.
  3. The rose beds are looking great and show that, contrary to popular belief, roses do grow well in Lake District conditions, providing you choose the right varieties.
