The Walled Gardens of Cannington lie within the grounds of a medieval priory. The gardens had undergone extensive redevelopment when officially opened by HRH the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward. The Gardens, located near Bridgwater, provide a superb facility for students at Bridgwater College. As you walk around look out for the ‘hot’ Herbaceous Border; the Blue Garden; the Sub-Tropical Walk; and a Victorian style fernery.
These are two of my favourite Magnolia species. First the Purple Magnolia or Magnolia liliiflora. Next the comparatively delicate looking Siebold’s Magnolia or Magnolia sieboldii. Can you chose your favourite of the two?
