We have reached our final garden in Warninglid, at the Yeoveney House. This garden is planted with rhododendron, camellias, azaleas, and hostas and other lovely plants in shades of lime green and chocolate-black colorings that have been so popular in the gardens here. As usual there was a “special something,” featured in this garden too. Each garden was so different and interesting!

 I want to take this time also to answer questions that I have been asked over the past weeks while I wrote these posts.  I was not in a specialized, planned, garden tour with a group. First, I joined the National Trust Society. (in the U.S. it is called The Royal Oak Society)  I do not remember exactly how I came to know about the National Garden Schemes, (maybe Facebook?) but I planned and researched the trip on my own, in order to visit the National Trust homes and the gardens on the NGS in the area of Kent and Sussex. All the listings were in the books I received after joining their societies. I just picked an area I thought would be interesting and went for it! I was not disappointed! The gardens we have visited have been splendid and it has been one of our best vacations ever! We loved driving around the countryside, eating in the local pubs, discovering the gardens, and visiting with other gardeners! This allowed us to get out and really enjoy the locals and learn about the UK! So without further ado, I give you Youveney House Garden. Thank you Warninglid, and the other gardens we visited, for making our garden tour so special!

In front of the garden shed were raised beds for vegetables in the garden.
