A group of beautiful gardens around Ely will be open for the public to admire on June 7.
The National Gardens Scheme is inviting guests to peruse a variety of superb gardens dotted around the city, with funds raised going to the scheme’s chosen charities.
Rosewell House, at 60 Prickwillow Road, has views of Ely Cathedral and the surrounding fenland. The garden boasts herbaceous borders, roses, a small pond and kitchen garden, a meadow with areas of cornfield planting and moving sculptures by Andrew Jones.
Close by, 50A Prickwillow Road is a small walled garden with shade border, succulents and vegetable plot, the emphasis being on foliage.
The Bishop of Ely’s garden, adjoining Ely Cathedral, has mixed planting with roses, wisteria and more.
