That's interesting as we're in Cornwall from May 22 to 29 and staying just an hour and a half away!
Thanks for the info, David
cheers

Fermi, The Garden House is only five minutes from Wildside, you could do both in the same day (TGH has a tea room!)

We visited both Wildside and the Garden House last summer. Unforgettable and highly advisable

Belatedly...we visited Wildside at the end of May. What a treat. If you're ever close by do visit. We were inspired in a way that can't really be conveyed through photographs. The gardens are a visual treat to be sure, but the way on which the landform has been modified is genius.

1. New dwelling under construction. The new rock garden below it is a bit bare at the moment. I'm not sure what plants are intended for, or how well the peat blocks will work in such a hot, sunny position.
2. variety of colours, shapes and textures along with repetition.
3. meadow beneath an orchard.
4. bearded Iris.
6. standard trained Wisteria.

16. Iris setosa aff. 'Broadleigh Rose'(?)
17. fragrant Eleagnus
18. Helianthemum
19. New garden under construction
20. Another view through the courtyard garden - similar to a pic Fermi showed recently, who visited on the same day as us and we were delighted to bump into at The Garden House.

Lovely photos, Matt. Must try to visit if we ever venture down that way again.
I don't think pic 16 is Iris setosa, it looks to me like one of the Pacific Coast hybrid irises - maybe Broadleigh Rose (there are several named irises with those pinky-brown colours.

Thank you Carolyn! The Iris looked familiar, but I couldn't put a name to it.

Dates for Wildside 's open days in 2019 ....

opening times on each of these dates will be 11am to 5pm.

April 5th - 7th

May  17th - 20th

June 27th - 30th

July  11th - 14th

and July   28th - 31st

These dates correspond in an average year with the main seasonal peaks of flowering. Notable amongst which are                                                                     
 April  (Magnolias and spring bulbs)                                                                                           
 May   (Azaleas, Japanese maples, Rodgersias, Wisterias, Iris, candelabra Primulas)                 
 June  (Massed perennials especially Dieramas)                                                                         
 July    (Massed perennials including Agapanthus, Campanulas, Lilies)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Admission 6.50
The Nursery -   The nursery is not open to the public at any time but we will be selling a selection of the plants we grow at the garden entrance on our garden open days. A selection of Ros Wiley's oil paintings and greetings cards will also be available at this point. The nursery is not open at any other times.
Unfortunately we do not have a tea-room and much of the garden is not accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs because of the very narrow paths.  Although dogs are not allowed in the garden there is ample opportunity for unlimited 'walkies' on the moor just over a mile away prior to a visit
Group visits  We are happy to accept groups of over 25 in number on other days in May, June & July only from 10am - 4pm.  The admission for groups of this size is 5.50 / head    (Please note there is a minimum admission charge for any group of 140 if visiting on a date other than those listed above).                                                                                               Should you require a pre-booked guided tour with Keith Wiley this will be an additional 50 / group (normally lasts 75-90 minutes)
