Earlswood Park’s moment

We don’t usually crow about rhododendrons on these pages. They can be such a scourge on nature reserves, where their invasive nature make them hard to get rid of. But Earlswood Park’s rhododendrons are a little bit different! The land where Persimmon Homes have laid out this Greenspace on your doorstep walk used to house a national collection of rhododendron varieties! The labels are long gone, so I can’t tell you what they are, but they’re awfully pretty!

If you’ve never been there, now is the time. It’s right next to Waitrose on the London Road, Bagshot.

Thanks to wardens Mike and Andi for dropping by yesterday to take these pictures.

For directions, information and more photographs, go to the Earlswood Park entry in Greenspace on your doorstep.
