Year Of The Bor­der

My Weekly - - Gardening -

This year has been named Year of the Bor­der and the place to see the UK’s long­est dou­ble herba­ceous bor­der is at Newby Hall Gar­dens near Ripon in North York­shire. There are 14 “gar­den rooms” on a stun­ning g 25-acre site and the 172 me­tre long bor­der packed with 6,500 plants is im­pres­sive and beau­ti­ful. There are huge drifts of plants in a pal­ette of colours and the bor­der is a haven for bees, but­ter­flies and drag­on­flies. . Eas­ily ac­cessed from the A1, it’s worth go­ing sev­eral times in the sea­son. WWW.NEWBYHALL.COM
