In today’s blog about my trip to Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, I thought I’d include some of the photographs that I took of individual plants just because I liked them. Sissinghurst is all about the group plantings and experiments with colour that the gardens creator Vita Sackville-West made very much her own but there is as much pleasure sometimes in getting in close and enjoying particular plants for their own individual qualities. Here they are – I hope you like them too. We were very lucky this June to see so many different varieties in bloom all at the same time. Some of them are rare and others are old favourites but after a day wandering around Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, our eyes are opened to every one of their particular glories. Enjoy!
