Visiting different gardens is a good way to see and experience plants throughout the seasons and to garner ideas about planting and landscaping suitable for our own gardens. Yesterday we visited Killerton National Trust garden near Exeter. It is a stunning mature garden with magnificent Rhododendrons and Azaleas.

Many of the plants were collected by a chap called Veitch, over 200 years ago from around the world. He himself had a nursery in Exeter but this has now been taken over by St Bridget’s Garden Centre.
Lord and Lady Acland gave this 4000 acre estate to the country in 1943 as well as a further 4000 acre estate near Minehead. All now look after by the National Trust on behalf of the Nation.
