National Garden Scheme (NGS) gardens to visit
By Julian & Edwina Robarts. Bromley Hall has a 4½ acre garden developed by owners surrounding C16 farmhouse.
By Mr Grenville Johnson & Mr Alan Elms. Award-winning, small courtyard town house garden on 2 decked levels with classical features and statuary incorporating temple folly ruin in Italianate setting, exotic and S-hemisphere garden.
By Steve Bustin National Garden Scheme (NGS) garden owner. Belton Close has only been on the map for five years (in fact it's yet to make it on to most maps) but despite this and the fact it's at the top of a hill and laid on top of builder's rubble, the garden at Number 1 already feels remarkably established and is full of colour and interest.
The garden designers Julian & Isabel Bannerman are still developing this rich mix of bold formality, water, woodland, orchard, meadow and kitchen garden with emphasis on scent, structure and romance, set amid a remarkable cluster of manorial buildings between Bath and Bristol.
A sure sign that spring is on its way is the re-emergence of snowdrops from their period of dormancy.
