Holehird Gardens in July: 3 things to look out for when you visit:
- 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.
- The Walled Garden is full of colour throughout the summer. The spectacular dark blue Delphinium 'Cassius' is one of the current stars.
- 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.
