Ashwood Garden Tour

Saturday 23rd February 2019 Garden Club Coach Trip

Trip to Ashwood Nurseries, Ashwood Kingswinford. Home of John Massey VMH. We set of from Wisley at 8am in the coach with a very foggy morning as we got nearer the fog cleared to a glorious sunny day.

We were shown around Johns private garden by himself, he gave us an inspirational tour of his beautiful private garden with lots of spring interest running alongside the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal, this is a definitely a  plantsman garden.

John is known for his work on Helleborus and Hepatica. He also is designing a new memorial garden  in memory of his young gardener (Adam) who died in his sleep early last year.


Ashwood Nursery Tour

We later had a nursery tour and was shown how they pollinate hellebore and propagation techniques, we then all went shopping! After a cup of tea, we then returned to Wisley arriving back at 6.30pm.
