18th Apr | Visit to ‘The Place For Plants’, East Bergholt

IMG0075A (2)What a lovely way to spend a warm spring afternoon!! Seven members of Capel Ladies Club visited the ‘Place for Plants’ at East Bergholt. We were not a large enough group to have the intended guided tour of the gardens, but were free to roam by ourselves. Most of the daffodils, magnolias and camellias were just finishing flowering, but some of the rhododendrons were just starting. There was also a beautiful area of flowering fritillaries. It was very quiet and peaceful but with a lot of birdsong, and we did catch the rat-a-tat-tat of a woodpecker – but never saw where he was. There were lots of healthy plants to see in the garden centre, and a well-stocked gift shop. Naturally, we could not end our afternoon without the obligatory tea and cake!!
