Agapanthus put on a spectacular show at Hole Park Gardens, Kent



The beautiful Hole Park Gardens in Rolvenden, Kent are now open every Wednesday and Thursday until the end of October when visitors can see a spectacular display of the late flowering Agapanthus ‘Hole Park Blue’.
 
‘Hole Park Blue’ was discovered only a few years ago and found to be unique to Hole Park Gardens.

Agapanthus ‘Hole Park Blue’ is one of 150 agapanthus varieties currently being evaluated by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) at RHS Wisley, where 2 years into the trial its exceptional size, deep blue colour, lateness and frost hardiness are already ensuring it stands out from the multitude.
 
Visitors to Hole Park at this time of year will see plenty of late summer colour in the 16 acre gardens including an amazing exotic border with brightly coloured plants including cannas and dahlias.
 
Everyone should look out for bears in the woods!  A wonderful new tree carving of a Family of Bears climbing an oak tree in search of honey.
 
A circular network of hard paths enables visitors of all ages, including those who require a wheelchair, to enjoy the gardens. Wheelchairs may be reserved free of charge and there are full disability WC facilities.
 
Light lunches and delicious homemade cakes are available in the coach house. There is also a small plant stall next to the coach house.
 
There is a dedicated tea room for groups, free parking for cars and coaches and conducted tours can also be arranged for groups by prior arrangement.
