Garden calm

Stanhoe WI members visit Dale Farm, Scarning.

It was a rather dull June afternoon when 12 intrepid Stanhoe and Barwick WI ladies set off for a garden visit to Dale Farm at Scarning on the outskirts of Dereham.

We were welcomed by the owners Graham and Sally Watts, both trained horticulturists: Graham with a wealth of experience in garden management and Sally, with a florist’s eye for colour, who is an experienced propagator.

Their two-acre plantsman’s garden created in the past 14 years has a central feature of a large spring-fed pond surrounded by beds of wonderful lush plants with over 1,000 species flowering to perfection, backed by shrubs and mature trees, and with immaculate grassy paths between the beds. Walking around the garden there was something new to see at every corner, and the knowledge of the plants imparted by the owners was such a wonderful backup.

It was sheer delight to sit on the terrace supping a cup of tea and eating delicious cake whilst looking at the expanse of garden.

There was an amazing array of very healthy plants for sale afterwards and members took great pleasure in buying treasures to enhance their own gardens at home.

What a wonderful visit this was.
