A small selection from the 2015 programme
Just a small selection of the gardens that opened last year: -
This rural garden merges with the field alongside and has become a haven for birds with feeders hanging under a 12 yr old "honeysuckle tree". The kitchen garden is the only formal arrangement and supplies vegetables for the house.
10 year project to develop a sustainable co-operative smallholding on 3.5 acres of pasture and woodland, now in its third year. It will work in harmony with nature, is organic and is exploring approaches like no dig growing, Permaculture and Hugelkultur.
Our garden of pots!' We have transformed our little parking area into a space of light; filled with colour and the sound of running water. It's a place to relax. The cats and Mary next door love it – size doesn't matter. It's a happy garden and all are welcome!
An air of peacefulness and a warm welcome greets all visitors to this cottage garden. Bright perennials and exquisite fragrances from the roses make a striking show, with planting reflecting the age of the property and its closeness to the medieval church.
All Saints Church dating back to 12th century and built with ironstone dressed with limestone, its oldest features are two circular piers in the north aisle. The church will be decorated with flowers, the organ played between 2.00pm and 4.00pm,
14 acres of formal and informal garden surrounded by parkland and arable. Many mature trees. Traditional herbaceous borders and various water features. Walled pool garden with raised beds. Ancient moat area along driveway
Come and meet the owners, enjoy your visit to these and other much loved gardens.
