Fun Fact Friday! Did you know Wisteria Floribunda are pruned twice a year in July/August and January/February? This allows the wood to ripen, improves the chances of flower buds forming and allows new flowers to be seen. These plants can be found in the Japanese Garden. #comptonacres #comptonacresgardens #gardens #historicalgardens #tearooms #poole #canfordcliffs #touristicattraction #touristspot #southengland #dorset #touristicattraction #southwest #garden #horticulture #plants #plantcentre #decorativeplants

Have you spotted this sculpture in Compton Acres? If so, can you tell us which garden it is closest to? We’ll give you a clue… it is the home of our Bacchus and Wrestlers of Herculaneum statues. #comptonacres #comptonacresgardens #gardens #historicalgardens #tearooms #poole #canfordcliffs #touristicattraction #touristspot #southengland #dorset #touristicattraction #southwest #garden #horticulture #plants #plantcentre #decorativeplants

In our first year of growing flowers for the cutting garden, the dahlias really stole the show and it’s easy to see why they have such a wide appeal. They were prolific and lasted well into the autumn, as you can see from the dewdrops on the petals. We’re looking ahead to next year now - if you have any suggestions as to what we can try, we’d love to hear them.... . . . . . . #dahlias #dahliasofinstagram #cuttinggarden #cutflowergarden #growingflowers #communitygardens #dulwich #southwark #southlondon #gardeningcommunity #kitchengardening #bellhousedulwich #historicalgardens #urbangardens #londongardens #gardenloversofinsta #gardeners

Look at this historic photo of the Italian Garden! Much has changed, but there some features that have stood the test of time… The main pool has always had a large place in the garden, with reflections of the plants bouncing off the service. If you look closely to the back, you’ll also see the statue of Bacchus in his Domed Temple. What’s your favourite part of the Italian Garden nowadays? #comptonacres #comptonacresgardens #gardens #historicalgardens #tearooms #poole #canfordcliffs #touristicattraction #touristspot #southengland #dorset #touristicattraction #southwest #garden #horticulture #plants #plantcentre #decorativeplants

I love seeing gardens at historical villages like this one at the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation. There's something so timeless and grounding for the human spirit to be able to dig in the dirt, encouraging things to grow and sustain or delight us. This garden has been put to sleep for the season and is my #gardengoals. Our new house has a lot of ornamental landscaping which is at once lovely and annoying and overwhelming. I prefer useful/edible landscaping which is something I'm hoping we can slowly convert over to. In the meantime, the weeds... Hopefully they won't finish me off before I do them in first. In other words, my garden is not tidily put to bed for the winter, but is still wild and ornery. I've got my work cut out for me. Sigh. 🌾🌻🌿🌱 #gardeninggoals2020 #historicalgardens #gardeningattempt #museumgardens

How much does your garden cost you? Most keen amateurs don’t give a thought to the amount of time and money they sink into the small patch of soil at the back of their houses, but for the seriously green-fingered, it’s likely to work out as a small fortune. A new history of gardening in England by Roderick Floud looks at the nation’s favourite pastime from an economic perspective. ••• Charles II Presented with a Pineapple c 1675, Royal Collection Trust ••• #monthlysubscription #bookworm #bookreader #book #books #bibliophile #booklover #bookshelf #booknerd #bookaddict #read #amreading #readinglist #currentlyreading #bookstagram #bookstagramer #magazine #litreview #roderickfloud #costofgardening #gardenhistory #historicalgardens #englishgardens #britishgardens

Throwback Thursday! Check out this old photo of our Italian Garden. The garden was built by Thomas William, Compton Acres original owner, in 1924. Original statuary remains including Bacchus in his Domed Temple and the famous bronze wrestlers of Herculaneum that face each other in perpetual battle. #comptonacres #comptonacresgardens #gardens #historicalgardens #tearooms #poole #canfordcliffs #touristicattraction #touristspot #southengland #dorset #touristicattraction #southwest #garden #horticulture #plants #plantcentre #decorativeplants
