Our second open garden event this summer is Liz Machin’s garden in Harpenden. With lots of late summer colour and interesting features, it’s sure to be a hit with Herts Group members, so join us if you can.
2, Barlings Road, Harpenden, Herts, AL5 2AN, 2 – 4pm
Liz Machin will be opening her garden to Herts HPS members at its peak this weekend. Set in a mature development, the garden is packed with unusual plants – shrubs, herbaceous perennials and climbers – designed to provide all-year-round structure, colour and contrast.
Highlights in August include green-and-white petalled Clematis ‘Alba Luxurians’, starry-flowered Clematis x triternata ‘Rubromarginata’, and towering blue-flowered chicory, Cichorium intybus.
There is also a delightfully colourful courtyard garden incorporating a water feature, and a secluded shade garden. Come along and while away an hour or so in beautiful surroundings. Liz’s garden is also described on her NGS Page
