Delphinium Festival

We are watching with bated breath as the first of the Delphiniums begin to flower. As always, the timing of our events must be scheduled at least six months in advance and this year everything has been held back by a dry, chilly spring. The warm sunshine for the first week of this month has made me optimistic though and I’m sure that they will catch up as we head into the festival week. I’ll keep you posted on Instagram @godintongardener

The rest of the garden is also catching up and the borders are full of irises, poppies, peonies and roses. In the Wild Garden the common spotted and bee orchids are putting in an appearance along with acres of ox eye daisies.
