Casters   Brook,   Midhurst    –   In   the   morning   we   visit   Jean   and   Philip   Jackson’s   large,   informal   garden with   huge   pond   (and   one   duck)   and   see   some   of   the   internationally   renowned   artist   Philip   Jackson’s   sculptures in a garden setting. In    the    afternoon,    after    a    stop    for    lunch,    we    will    visit    Dean   House,   Kilmeston .     This    garden    was described   to   me   as   ‘the   jewel   in   the   NGS   crown’   by   the   NGS   organiser   for   our   county.   The   7   acres   have also   been   described   as   ‘a   well-kept   secret   hidden   behind   the   elegant   façade   of   its   Georgian   centrepiece’. Sweeping   lawns,   York   stone   paths,   gravel   pathways,   many   mature   trees   and   herbaceous   borders.   Rose garden,   pond   garden,   working   walled   garden   with   glasshouses,   60   metre   laburnum   and   wisteria   tunnel. We   will   be   met   and   guided   to   the   Orangery   for   a   talk,   slideshow   and   introduction   to   the   garden.   With   maps provided,   we   make   a   self-guided   tour   at   our   leisure,   after   which   time   we   return   to   the   Orangery   for   a ‘sumptuous’ tea where the gardeners will be present to answer any questions we may have. A wonderful day out for the cost of £32 to include the driver’s tip.   Please contact Annette Wood on  01243 378482   or by email at annettelizwood@gmail.com  to book your place.   If   this   is   confirmed,   please   send   a   cheque   to   7   Beacon   Square      Emsworth   PO10   7HU   for   £32    made   out   to E.H.S    and   dated   July   18 th    2018 .   Please   also   include   your   mobile   phone   number    and   email   address    if possible.

GLORIOUS GARDENS OF YORKSHIRE - June 2019 - 4 days 3 nights
Our   visit   to   Oxford   will   start   with   a   guided   tour   of   the   University   Botanic   Garden   which   is   beautifully   sited on   the   the   banks   of   the   Cherwell   River.      There   are   two   magnificent   glasshouses   as   well   as   formal herbaceous   beds   and   natural   wildflower   plantings.   The   tour   will   last   an   hour   and,   I   understand,   we   will   be split into 3 groups to enable everyone to get maximum interest from the expertise of the guides. Oxford   is   full   of   architectural   gems   and   Magdalen   is   definitely   one   of   the   grandest.      It   is   situated   just   across the   road   from   the   Botanic   Garden,   and   everyone   will   be   given   a   pamphlet   to   self   guide   road   the   gardens, through the courts and cloisters, visit the chapel and, if wished a walk along the river. There   will   be   approximately   2   hours   for   you   to   explore   on   your   own   other   areas   and   Colleges   of   the   City and   we   have   easy   to   follow   maps   to   hand   out.      Alternatively,   you   can   spend   longer   in   either   of   the   two principal venues. There   are   about   a   dozen   seats   still   available   on   the   coach,   so   if   you   are   interested   in   coming   on   this   trip please   email   < dugoutgardens@gmail.com >   or   phone   01243   370263   and   we'll   get   back   to   you   as   soon as we hear from you.  Sally and Doug Outram
