A Garden Outing to Essex
May 3, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm£49
‘Ulting Wick’, Maldon, Essex:
Coffee and biscuits will be taken before we view this beautiful, spring garden especially significant for tulip lovers. The colourful arrangements stand out from a backdrop of listed, black barns. There are 8 acres of innovative plantings, plus a pond overhung with golden weeping willow trees. ’The English Garden’ magazine listed ’Ulting Wick’ as one of the ’Top Ten’ spring gardens to visit.
We head on to Kelvedon for a light lunch at ‘The George and Dragon’, before visiting ‘Kelvedon Hall’ with its 6 acre garden surrounding an attractive 18C farmhouse. This is another lovely spring garden comprising formal and informal areas:
pleached hornbeam hedges, topiary, with walled gardens, ponds and sculpture.
We will enjoy tea and cake before setting off on our return.
