Family Connections

This week we welcomed Marjorie Gaestel from the board of Directors at Happy Retreat, West Virginia, to Sulgrave. Happy Retreat was the home of Charles, George Washington’s brother. We learned so much about the wider Washington family thanks to Marjorie’s research and some fascinating facts which we will now be able to share with our visitors.

Our Wedding Season has Officially Started

It must be the start of the Wedding Season as our Exochorda x macrantha ‘The Bride’ is in full flower.​ Not the simplest plant name, but a beautiful addition to any garden. Come and see ours flowering this weekend.
