RHS Garden Harlow Carr

Posted on: December 4th, 2011 by Rob

Harlow Carr is the newest and most northerly of the four RHS gardens. This, along with its challenging growing conditions, offers an ideal place to view what can be grown successfully in the region.

The garden is seeing exciting new developments while retaining its uniquely tranquil and welcoming atmosphere. Probably the most spectacular are the dramatic new Rose Revolution borders that edge the path to Gardens through Time.

Their use of mixed perennials, grasses and roses beautifully combines sustainable practice, inspirational horticulture and a contemporary twist! Also not to be missed are the superb new Main Borders – a gorgeous mix of herbaceous perennials, grasses and shrubs, starting with hot vibrant colours, and gradually moving to cooler shades towards the stream side. Gardens through Time takes you through 200 years of living gardening history up to a contemporary garden designed by Diarmuid Gavin.
