A plantsman’s garden which is carefully structured to present year-round flowering and foliage

This is a beautifully verdant garden with layers of different planting which provide great depth of interest with evergreen hedges, ferns, shrubs and phlox covering the ground. The boundaries are planted up with climbers and seasonal planting adds colour to this rich, green oasis.

It’s a visual feast which is ‘accessorised’ accordingly, with pots of rosemary, topiary of buxus, a small pond with an elegant statue flanked by water iris, and during the summer months frames of sweet peas with their delicious scent. It’s a garden to be ‘absorbed’ with garden seats dotted about to do that very thing.
