It’s coming up to that time of year when the gardens at Rosemoor will be in full bloom. The grounds are simply stunning – there is so much to look at. Our family loves to visit and we have yet to see everything, even though we have visited on numerous occasions. We try to go at the start of each season as the flowers change from month to month. There are numerous different gardens, and some lovely walks. Even though it does get busy, you can always find a quiet spot.
Rosemoor was the home of Lady Anne Palmer who gave it to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988. In 1989 work began on building the new visitor centre, which houses the plant sales, the shop, restaurant and lecture theatre.
Rosemoor welcomes children, and there are a host of activities to interest their budding minds, depending on the season. Our grand-daughter, Eliza, loves it. This picture was taken there last year. How she has grown since then! In the May bank holiday, children can have a go at orienteering, craft activities, den making and mini beast hunts.
There are also lots of other projects going on for the adults as well. One of our favourite times to visit is during the Rose Festival between June and July. If you haven’t yet been there, this is a must for you. Why don’t you pop over there when you are down this way – it takes just under an hour from East Bowerland Farm.
