Autumnal glory to be revealed for first time at Himalayan gardens
12:33pm Monday 14th October 2013 in News
AN AWARD-winning Himalayan garden will show off its autumnal colours for the first time this month.
The 20-acre grounds at Grewelthorpe, near Ripon, traditionally just open in spring. But this year they will open from October 25 until November 3, with activities for children and some vivid autumn displays.
Owner of the Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park, Peter Roberts, said: “The gardens are set to look fantastic with lots of beautiful autumnal colours. Also - as it is half term week - there will be plenty of kid’s activities including a wildlife and sculpture trail, den-building, scavenger hunt and a spooky woodland walk.”
Over the past year a number of new installations have been added to the gardens, including a lakeside Chinese pagoda and the installation of a 15-metre floating sculpture.
Plants will also be on sale in the nursery, which includes 200 different varieties of rhododendron.
The gardens will be open daily from 10.30am to 4.00pm. For more information visit; www.himalayangarden.com
