There are displays for every season and just now, the herbaceous borders within the Summer Gardens are just gorgeous and, for another post, the hydrangeas in The Glades too. Complete your visit with a walk around Virginia Water, or take in the Polo on Smith’s Lawn….. I’ve written about and photographed these gardens at different times of the year, so there are more entries in this blog if you want to take a look.
