Favourite Gardens - Rosemoor
Rosemoor RHS Garden, Great Torrington, Devon, UK
by Jennie Thomas and David Young
Rosemoor RHS Garden in North Devon is one of our favourite English Gardens. We experienced the beauty of these large, 65 acre gardens on a rainy day in June. Undeterred by showers, we revelled in the added dimension that sparkling raindrops give to petals and leaves. The air was fresh and, best of all, we had the gardens almost to ourselves. It was like walking in the private gardens of a very large, very well-to-do establishment. But these gardens are public, not private. They are a jewel in the crown of the RHS. Let us share Rosemoor with you through our photographs.
