The number of people here has finally reached the point where you those with even a little claustrophobia start getting a bit ‘antsy’. Regardless of the crowds however, once you manage to elbow your way to the front (some people can be really vicious!) the gardens are worth the wait.
The Artisan gardens are smaller than the main show gardens as you might expect, but no less thought and skill has gone into their creation.
The Japanese garden won with a very impressive display.
Other notables (that I could reach to photograph!) are below, including the delightful Hebridean Weaver’s Cottage.
