We went there on a hot day when the azaleas were out and they were stunning! The site is very big and the owners have a lot of maintenance to organise, plus the nursery to run - so impressive, worth a visit!

We visited Fast Rabbit Farm, a haven of wildlife and walked around the lakes and the surrounding landscape. A great nursery with a big selection of good quality plants, advice on hand and reasonably priced.

A long, hot spell with no rain meant that many of the nursery items were not planted out. The balance was a little dull which was disappointing after an hour’s drive to see it.

Sorry Cathy. The weather has made life very difficult. However the 'steps' are flowering well and the waterlilies are beautiful. There is a considerable range of trees to shelter under and time spent by the lake watching dragonflies and damselflies is a delightful experience.
