For their July evening outing the Burrowbridge Gardening Club met at Newtown Farm, Hemyock, the home of the Ward family. After travelling through heavy rain to get there, we were amazed to find that at Hemyock it was a dry and pleasant evening. Mr Ward showed us round the garden of four acres, which was very varied and beautiful. There was a maze, long herbaceous borders, ponds, trees and conifers, including rare specimens from France. The garden also has the RHS
national collection of Gentians and Rhodohypoxis. Mrs Ward provided us with tea and delicious homemade cakes and we all appreciated their hospitality.
