The gardens here change daily, especially at this time of year. Don't miss the candelabra primulas in the bog garden

Our cornus kousa are looking the best we can remember this year. Their bracts will stay for a few weeks yet - make sure you come and see them.

Plans are underway at Marwood Hill Garden to create an area to encourage butterflies.

Not so flaming June has arrived, after a lovely start to the year. However, some of the larger shrubs and trees are now coming into their own - look out especially for the unusual Hankerchief tree, with its hankie-like flowers.

Now is the time to come and see the National Collection of astilbes here at Marwood.

On Wednesday 26th June we had an evening walk around the garden for our current season ticket holders.

Papaver somniferum 'Lauren's Grape' introduced this year to Marwood's herbaceous borders, is a stunning poppy that always draws attention.

Below are the stunning photographs of photographer Rob Dougall taken at our gardens early this morning.

Chamaenerion angustifolium ‘album’

Rosebay Willowherb  

 ‘Weed or Wildflower?’

Rosebay willowherb, aka the gardener’s enemy. It runs rampant through beds, growing over anything and everything in its path. With its underground runners and the speed that it set seeds, it is notoriously difficult to control and remove... So why then, is this plant of the month? The answer is simple; everybody wants to buy it!

Chamaenerion angustifolium ‘album’ is the white flowering form of Rosebay Willowherb. With it’s tall, willowy and graceful; slender spikes of white flowers and apple-green willow like leaves, it’s really quite striking.
