The team of National Trust gardeners, who care for the garden at Agatha Christie’s holiday home Greenway, have once again harvested a fantastic crop of awards at the RHS Rosemoor Flower Show. The team were awarded three 1st places, three 2nd places and one 3rd for their floral arrangements and prize-winning camellias.
Two dolphins were making the most of the Easter holiday sunshine on Monday 10 April by paying a visit to Agatha Christie’s holiday home, Greenway. The dolphins were spotted from Greenway’s Boathouse, and seen swimming up and down the River Dart on five separate occasions.
The gardeners are preparing to plant 100 hydrangeas in the garden at Agatha Christie’s holiday home Greenway, now cared for by the National Trust. This mass planting is part of a project to rejuvenate an area of the garden known as the Hydrangea Walk.
The camellias from the spring garden at National Trust Greenway were centre stage at the RHS Early Spring Flower Show at Rosemoor on Saturday 11 March, stealing the show with 14 prizes. The faultless flowers were awarded five 1st places, four 2nd and five 3rd out of a total of 17 entries from the garden of Agatha Christie’s holiday home.
A mechanical flower installation has taken root in the lawn of Agatha Christie’s beloved Devon holiday home, now cared for by the National Trust. Modelled on the spring flowers which are starting to fill the woodland garden, the pop-up interactive flower installation by Forkbeard Fantasy has four plants on the verge of blooming; they just need a helping hand. If visitors pull the levers, the mechanical flowers pop up from their seed or bulb, begin to grow and open their petals.
