Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country Notebook -

Au­gust 7, 11am– 5pm. £ 8.50, chil­dren £ 3.50. Plants for sale, dogs wel­come. The fa­mous dou­ble herba­ceous bor­der at Ar­ley, the old­est in Eng­land and one of the great sights in any gar­den, will be at its peak when the gar­den opens in aid of the NGS on Sun­day. It’s just one out­stand­ing fea­ture in this true aris­to­crat of a coun­try-house gar­den, in which suc­ces­sive gen­er­a­tions of the same fam­ily have en­sured that the qual­ity has been main­tained. There is so much else to ad­mire and en­joy, such as great columns of clipped ilex, rows of pleached limes and an im­mac­u­late walled gar­den. If you’ve never been, it’s one that any en­thu­si­ast should visit—if you’re a reg­u­lar, you’ll need no con­vinc­ing to go again. Visit www.ngs.org.uk
