Our June Garden visit was a return to Tram Hatch at Charing Heath. Fifteen of us were shown round the three acres of gardens by Pam and Alan Scrivens. Alan and Pam have lived at Tram Hatch for 25 years and have transformed expanses of lawn into a series of loosely defined spaces. A unique feature of the garden is the River Stour which runs parallel to the gardens.
There is a huge selection of flowers and a large collection of trees including cornus, beech and acers. A highlight of the afternoon was the large formal rose garden with beautiful David Austin blooms. There is also an orchard, large vegetable garden and ponds fringed with plants.
After looking around the garden most of us had a strawberry cream tea, which was delicious.
