Having moved to their new home in Offenham in June 2009, Sheila & Adrian James have created a new garden there from scratch.  They now open the garden on specific dates under the NGS (yellow book), and by arrangement for small group visits from which donations to local charities are made from money raised.

Please contact us with your enquiries about small group visits.

Langdale Spring / Summer 2017

Rosemoor bedWe like to experiment with new ways of giving seasonal colour at Langdale.  After the long dark winter months, this year we enjoyed pans of dwarf irises placed around the garden, see left where we have pots of vivid blue dwarf iris plunged into a gravel filled pan.  It was so successful this will become a regular feature.

By mid summer the Rosemoor bed (right) is starting to do its thing, continuing well into autumn.  I am particularly enjoying this view of white Anthemis ‘Sauce Hollandaise’ & yellow Anthemis ‘Wargrave’ contrasted with the dark handsome foliage of Cercis canadensis ‘Ruby Falls’.  Simple pleasures.dwarf irises

If you would like to visit the garden at Langdale this year, we are open with two other fabulous gardens for the National Garden Scheme on Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th August 11am – 5pm.  See the NGS web site for details – we are under the name of Offenham Gardens.  Come & enjoy the gardens, relax with a cup of tea & homemade cake, buy some interesting plants & locally grown salad vegetables, with all money raised going off to support charities.  We would love to see you here!
