Reasons for trip

I visited Harlow Carr Gardens with the family and have written a general review “here.”:http://www.silvertraveladvisor.com/review/attraction/204553-review-rhs-garden-harlow-carr

I came back with loads of pictures – too many to include in one review, so have decided to write more detailed reviews of the different parts of the garden with more pictures. This covers the streamside garden. This is justifiably one of the most popular walks in the garden and there are plenty of seats to sit and enjoy the views.

A stream runs the length of the garden, from the lake and is one of the longest stream side gardens in the country. This makes a lovely walk with stone bridges linking both sides of the stream.

The banks are planted with a wide range of water loving plants, including the massive Gunnera. Flowering plants are designed to provide colour for many months of the year, with Hostas, Astilbe and Meadow Sweet. The tall candelabra primulas thrive along the banks and have interbred over the years producing many different hybrids.They also have the advantage of flowering over a long period too.
