Leading to the church
Borders of highly fragrant shrub roses, tall spikes of foxtail lilies, and an underplanting of herbaceous perennials characterise the first part of the garden. To one side, a large wooden framed greenhouse is often burgeoning with newly propagated plants for the garden’s nearby nursery. Visitors can also discover other treasures, such as a herb garden, a small tropical garden, and a pictorial meadow near the greenhouse.
The lawn leads through to an ornamental pond edged by weathered york stone. On a calm day the church is clearly reflected in the pond’s still water interspersed with flowering water lilies. The deep herbaceous borders with their distinctive colour themes provide a fragrant vibrancy.
