A garden more than forty years in the making...and still evolving, featured in Landscape Magazine May 2021.
Winner of the R H S/DAILY MAIL NATIONAL GARDEN PRIZE..
out of 3200 entries.....
"This is a wonderful garden...inspirational, exuberant, confident and brilliantly maintained.
A profusion of plants, rare and less rare, artfully arranged in great combinations of form, shape, size and colour.
It is a real lesson in what can be achieved in a comparatively small space on sloping ground and including a narrow lane with high walls on each side. Be sure to spend as much time in the garden as possible, just sitting and contemplating English gardening at its very best"
R H S National Council Member.
The garden has featured on TV and in many leading magazines and journals. It has until this year been an R H S Partnership garden and an NGS garden for 35 years.
