21st June: Invitation to visit Capel Manor College, Enfield

The Master Gardener, His Royal Highness Prince Edward invited the Masters to a Garden Party, hosted by the Master himself at Capel Manor College.  What a wonderful way to spend the longest day of the year and  blessed by sunshine .

Capel Manor is both a working college, teaching students the full range of skills from gardening, through to animal husbandry. It is home to the highly regarded Saddlery course, one of the last in the country, sadly.

We were taken through the Gardens by the Principal, who explained the history and showed us many gardens, which had been Prize Winners at Chelsea, as far back as the late 1980s and reinstated at Capel. A delightful afternoon!
