In an English coun­try gar­den...

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Tonight’s Tv -

WITH the ar­rival of June comes sum­mer and the English coun­try gar­den at Deene Park abounds with roses, irises, gera­ni­ums and other sum­mer favourites.

All year round the gar­den­ers work hard to main­tain the long bor­ders and the parterre by David Hicks, be­comes more spec­tac­u­lar as it ma­tures.

In ad­di­tion to their or­di­nary work­load, gar­den­ers have re­cently been busy plant­ing tubs and urns, cre­at­ing an op­u­lent dis­play for vis­i­tors to en­joy.

These ef­forts, on the part of the gar­den­ers, con­trib­ute to the calm feel­ing of the gar­dens, with seats from which to ad­mire the view of the sur­round­ing coun­try­side and res­i­dent wildlife.

The gar­den­ers’ work is not just out­doors: a var­ied dis­play of house­plants, in­clud­ing pe­largo­ni­ums, cre­ates a won­der­ful am­bi­ence in which to en­joy the art, fur­ni­ture and porce­lain on show in a house which has been oc­cu­pied by the Bru­denell fam­ily since 1514 and which was the seat of the Earls of Cardi­gan. It was the 7th Earl who led the Charge of the Light Bri­gade.

The Scent of Sum­mer dis­play is open both this Wed­nes­day and June 16.

For these two af­ter­noons only, the head gar­dener will be avail­able to an­swer any ques­tions that vis­i­tors may have about their own gar­dens, giv­ing the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to pick up some tips and ad­vice.

In ad­di­tion to these two dates, Deene Park, sit­u­ated on the A43 be­tween Corby and Stam­ford, is also open on all other Wed­nes­days in June, Sun­days and Bank Hol­i­day Mon­days un­til Au­gust, from 2pm to 5pm.

En­try to the house and gar­dens is £8 for adults and £4 for chil­dren. Gar­dens only is £5.50 for adults and £2.50 for chil­dren.
