Yesterday was the final day of my RHS practical horticulture course at Ryton Organic Gardens. One of the final assignments to complete was a walk around the gardens, identifying pests, diseases and damage to plants, and their causes.
Which gave me the perfect opportunity to combine this with a last wander with my phone to take some photos.
I started my course in late September, so now in June the gardens are looking the best I’ve ever seen them.
The wildflower meadow was a quite unexpected and beautiful surprise tucked away near the back of the site.
This is the Paradise Garden, a tribute to Geoff Hamilton who was influential in the growth of the popularity of organic gardening.
This is the Rose Garden, my cohort has been involved in maintaining this and we practiced winter pruning the roses here in November. It’s gone wild since I was last here.
Ryton Organic Gardens is located just outside Coventry and is open every day.
