Picton Garden

Originally published on Photoblog by Gethin Thomas October. 02, 2020

A post by Aphrodite about Michaelmas Daisies reminded me of this garden we visited last year. Situated on the lower slopes of the Malvern Hills Old Court Nurseries & The Picton Garden covers 2 acres on the edge of the village of Colwall. The nursery was established in 1906 by Michaelmas daisy breeder Ernest Ballard to start commercially producing his plants. Over the decades he raised many award-winning cultivars including the well-known ‘Marie Ballard’.

We also had a very nice bar meal at the Colwall Park Hotel quite near by if you want to make it into a day out.
