Description of Garden

With a south-facing, sheltered situation with almost no frost, the owners were tempted to try exotica that would survive on the thinly covered steep limestone slopes. European fan palms, acacias, callistemons and many sub-tropical plants from the southern hemisphere thrive here. Over 200 phormiums, or New Zealand flax, form the National Collection and are the pride of the owners. Magnificent views over Morecambe Bay.

History Of Garden

Planted from 1988 onwards - and developed by the owners since.
