Victoria has been invited back to display her willow sculptures amongst the Plant Heritage National Collection of Autumn Flowering Asters in The Picton Garden held at the Old Court Nurseries in Colwall near Malvern. Old Court is a third generation family run business and offers a friendly personal service, specialising in breeding and growing MICHAELMAS DAISIES (Autumn Flowering Asters). The garden is open from August until mid October including many days for the National Gardens Scheme.
Please check the Old Court Nurseries website, the NGS Yellow Book etc. or phone the nursery for opening dates and times. The well known Picton Garden has over 400 varieties of Michaelmas Daisies that are growing in profusion with many other late season perennials. It has recently been featured on Gardeners World and the New BBC2 series the Great British Garden Revival where Chris Beardshaw celebrated the delights of herbaceous borders with the Queen of Asters Helen Picton.
Ross Barbour of Old Court Nurseries discusses the planting at Picton Garden with a keen local gardener while Victoria Westaway's sculptures for gardens adorn the borders and add interest to a newly planted area.
