The Dalemain Gardens in Summer
The recent warm weather has really brought the Gardens along and they are looking beautiful! Our famous Himalayan blue poppies (Meconopsis Grandis Dalemain) are on show in the Low Garden, and the roses along the terrace are smelling divine.
The poppies originally arrived at Dalemain after being gifted to Sylvia McCosh by George Sheriff, who discovered the seedlings growing in Bhutan in 1934. The Meconopsis thrive at Dalemain and each year from late May to mid-June, they put on a fabulous display. These poppies are available to buy at the Plant Centre here at Dalemain for those who want to bring the elegance of the Meconopsis to their own gardens. If the weather continues as it is, they will begin to turn in the latter half of this month, so be sure to visit us soon to see them at their finest.
