It’s surrounded by Oak, Silver Birch and Pine trees which provides for a beautiful, secluded woodland garden. The surrounding trees, however, mean a lot of the garden is dry and shady, the mention of which has most gardeners running for the hills!
I’ve not really had a problem with the dry shade areas and have found numerous plants which have thrived in the garden.
As a passionate gardener, plantsman and designer, I get to visit a lot of gardens, so I’m always coming home with a list of new plants I want to try and new planting combinations. As such, it would be fair to say the gardens (both back and front) are in a permanent state of ongoing change.
In future posts, I’ll walk you around the garden and detail the (many) plants I have used and will keep your updated on new ideas and plans.
