Wandered around these gardens for a while, I especially liked the sensory area and the salad area with a note to say help your self!. Lots of steps and it is quite slippery when wet.

Cared for by volunteers with plenty of benches to sit on. The plants and flowers are always well kept and the benches provide a place to sit and admire the river Wye and the surrounding countryside.

The Thomas Blake Memorial Garden is a really nice area to sit and watch the day go by amidst some beautifully maintained beds which are full of lovely scents and wildlife.

These gardens are passed on the way down to the river. They look really beautiful and when getting close up smell magical too. A really great addition to the local environment.

I often visit this garden when visiting Ross on Wye. Lovingly constructed by volunteers showing many shrubs and flowers. It overlooks the river while so close to town. Highly recommended for viewing.
