RHS Rosemoor - April 2019
My 30th birthday present to myself was a membership to the Royal Horticultural Society. It was £47.75 to join as a individual member but the benefit of this membership means that you can take a visitor free of charge when visiting RHS gardens. The membership has a variety of other benefits including a regular magazine, entrance to partner gardens and discounts on RHS shows.
I went to visit RHS Rosemoor with Jon on Tuesday 9th April, it was my first ever visit and i couldn't wait to explore. On arrival i was greeted by very helpful staff who handed me a map and explained the various walking routes and that there was an art exhibition on (i later found one of my favourite floral artists work was in there, read more about that here)
Touring around i had a fantastic time, though busy because of the Easter holidays i didn't feel like it was crowded and there was plenty of opportunities for me to take photographs undisturbed. I didn't realise how family friendly it as there, a range of childrens play areas and lots of fun activities for them to get involved in; i'll certainly be bringing my sons to visit soon.
Rosemoor was amazing, it was the most beautiful place i have ever been. I really enjoyed the day exploring and felt that i learnt so much in just the few hours that i was there. There were plant labels with most of the flowers which meant i was able to note down the ones that caught my eye to learn more about. I really loved the kitchen garden areas which gave me lots of inspiration for my allotment.
We stopped at the Wisteria Tea Room and had the most fantastic Cream Tea sharing first a savory cream tea and then a fruit cream tea. I would go as far as to say it was the best cream tea i have ever had.
Overall i would say that RHS Rosemoor is a fantastic place to visit.
