As far as I can work out you can't now visit the Saxifrage garden without having to pay because they've blocked off that part. Previously you could access the Saxifrage garden by going through the nursery.

Can anyone confirm?  Does that mean on the Saxifrage day you have to pay the £7.50 each to get in?
News from Adrian - Entry is  free on Saxifraga Day.   :)

that is good news. It's a pity I can't get to see the garden at other times, I am fairly local and it's an interesting place at any time of the year.
