We have a south-facing garden developed over the last 27 years comprising a series of linked areas each with different growing conditions, enabling a wide variety of shrubs and perennials to be grown, such as magnolias, roses, hydrangeas, heucheras, hostas, euphorbias, iris, astrantias and hemerocallis. Paths radiate from the lawn through archways leading to a woodland area with bulbs, perennials and ferns under mature oak and beech trees, a gravel area with grasses and pond, fruit and vegetable growing area and bug hotels. We have lots of hellebores and other spring flowering bulbs and plants. Many of the plants in the garden are propagated for sale and we also do refreshments (home-made cake!). Entry is £3.50. There is no wheelchair access, and assistance dogs only. You would be very welcome!
