On 4th May 2019 – Garden Gaggle Group members visited The Valley Gardens and Azalea Punch Bowl at the Windsor Great Park. Starting at the Saville Gardens Car Park, pass the Polo Field we came to The Valley Gardens.
Looking towards Virginia Water, The Valley Gardens feature a glorious collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and magnolias. After clearing the central valleys and restoring the views to the lake, they created paths and rides to form the structure of the new garden. Clusters of plants were added, flooding the landscape with vivid colour and creating a flowering forest of exotic shrubs.
We completed our visit having tea and a yummy cake at the Saville Garden Café, well it was rude not to ?…….
