Midney Gardens

Between East Lambrook Manor and Lytes Carey we found Midney Gardens, although the gardens were only begun 8 years ago, they gained the accolade of becoming an RHS Partner Garden this year and it's easy to see why when you visit.
The gardens are divided into several distinct sections: Seaside Garden, Plantsman's garden, Vegetable Garden, World Garden, Grasses, Woodland Walk and Wild Life Garden, Herb Garden and long views and glimpses garden. We started with the Seaside Garden
which has a wonderful beachy feel
From there we walked into the Plantsman's Garden
From one end of the garden, we walked back through the seaside garden to the other part of the garden, through interestingly arranged vegetables and herbs
on either side of a path
These Alliums were beautiful
as were the special arrangements in the middle of the path.
At the far end of the garden, there's a Labyrinth with a standing stone at the centre. The information on the board about the Labyrinth encourages the visitor to experience the calmness achieved by walking to the centre and back again. There were large numbers of butterflies and birds in the garden, obviously a haven for wildlife.

There's also a polytunnel with fascinating and wonderful arrays of plants from around the world
This was a lovely arrangement of Echeverias and Aeoniums
and more in another part of the polytunnel
I bought 3 plants and put them in a pot together; I took a photograph which I must find and add.
