Rita May Grimsted (15 August 2011)

Exbury Gardens have gone down in history - my memory is fresh as were the splendid masses of orchids, the wonderful trees and shrubs, wet with the early morning dew, the song of the birds greeting yet another day and, yes, a sense of peace came to us all as we searched for bird's eggs and collected leaves from the trees blowing in the breeze. It was the year 1944 - we were 10yrs old, and invited there by our dad R.N. Officer Ernie Grimsted to spend the weekend at HMS Mastodon, as he was then Master at Arms. He played the organ for us in Exbury Church, and we played putting on the church lawns - and so we were able to forget the enemy planes overhead and the odd one which crashed on the gardens. Life continued there despite so many obstacles, gardeners work so hard all year round to give us the continued joy sense of peace and well being, see you all again very soon God willing.

My husband and I have just returned from a short break to the New Forest area and whilst there we visited Exbury Gardens. To say they are stunning is to under state them. As we walked around it seemed a carpet of colour met us at every turn and it just went on and on it was absolutely fantastic. We have visited other gardens in other areas but none can even come close to Exbury. We took several photos which thankfully show the beauty of the blooms we saw. It was a super sunny day and such a great pleasure to wander around the gardens taking in all the colour and size of the azaleas and rhododendrons. Our thanks to all the staff at Exbury and to 'Mr Eddy'( as I believe the owner is known) for allowing us to see his amazing collection of shrubs.
