                            Plants for all seasons

One of the main strengths of this garden is the very wide variety of plants. I have nearly 2000 different types of plant including trees, shrubs, hardy perennials, grasses, ferns, climbers, bulbs, annuals and tender plants. This means the garden is interesting and colourful throughout the year.
Winter There are winter flowering, usually scented, shrubs, stem colour, hellebores and snowdrops in January and February.
Spring Lots of bulbs and woodland plants more shrubs and flowering trees take us through early spring to iris, aqilegia, geraniums, violas, early clematis, tulip sprengeri, lilac, abutilon and deutzia in May.
Summer Lots of roses provide scent and colour in June with clematis, poppies, paeonies and philadelphus. Some of the roses will flower until autumn.
Herbaceous plants, annuals and tender things, especially salvias take the garden through July and August with the grasses playing an increasing role, a large collection of viticella and herbaceous clematis add colour to plants which have finished flowering.
Autumn September and October give us asters, grasses, berries and early autumn colour while November and December give late autumn colour, miscanthus, brave things such as schizostylus and mahonia and the beauty of the winter woodland.

If you like plants and want to see what looks good at a particular time of the year why not try a private visit out of season and see what we have providing a good display.
