The Rogues Gallery Garden, Breezy Knees Gardens
The theme of this garden is invasive but attractive plants, which tend to swamp plants around them. In this garden they can meet their match in neighbouring plants, or some are planted in large metal troughs which limit their spread.
Breezy Knees Gardens
Breezy Knees is a fairly new garden, about 5 miles east of York near the village of Warthill. It occupies about 20 acres, divided up into a series of separate gardens each with an individual theme.
Development started in the late 1990s when belts of trees were planted in former farmland to create windbreaks. Planting of the gardens started about 6 or 7 years later.
The planting is almost entirely of perennial plants. Much of the work is carried out by part-time gardeners so they only have the equivalent of 2 full-time gardeners.
The gardens are open from the beginning of May to the end of September (in 2018), see their website for details and prices - LinkExternal link
