Description of Garden

A true 2-acre plantsman's garden with all year round interest with regular monthly openings to reflect the ever changing seasons. Formal gardens comprising shady borders, scented and sun-loving beds with woodland and butterfly planting. Large kitchen gardens, greenhouse, orchard, wild flower area and herb garden. NEW extensive borders and planting planting for 2015.

History Of Garden

We started in 2010 when the formal gardens were designed and planted by Chelsea Gold Medal winner, Xa Tollemache of Helmingham Hall. By then we had just planted our orchard with in excess of 40 different fruit trees and our vegetable and kitchen gardens were well underway. Our herb garden followed on which was built and planted up. 2014 saw extensive changes to the rear garden with five new flower beds and work continues in 2015.
