It’s great to watch a garden develop through the seasons. My recent return to the Bishop’s Palace Garden in Wells showed new areas of the garden reaching their peak. The roses were blooming. There were also many other plants in their element. I particularly enjoyed the balance between formal and wilder areas of the garden.
The Well House was smothered in roses.
Other Floral Highlights
I particularly liked that the Bishop’s Palace has found space for wildlife as well as offering a floral garden spectacle. For example, the banks up to the ramparts are protected as a small shrew habit and to allow spring wildflowers to set seed. There was still room for the Palace croquet team to play on the pristine lawn with its magnificent Wells Cathedral backdrop.
