We have 2 very different gardens on this page - Sarah's and Daphne's
SARAH'S GARDEN Sarah's garden is a mature town garden. A mixture of shrubs herbaceous and bulbs. She also has an extensive vegetable garden growing potatoes, beans, leeks, peas, onions and sprouts. As well as her horticultural efforts she is a craft enthusiast. Specially print making and textiles. So she turned her talents to making a "textile garden" a few years ago. This was inspired by traditional a Knot garden. Last Edited/Photos added 18/04/20
It is a challenging windy site with views South towards Ferns Castle. The garden is approximately one acre which was farmland. It now has a two-storey house located at the centre. A lawn to the front is surrounded on two sides by a shrubbery with some ornamental trees within the lawn. On the south side of the house there are Herbaceous borders which lead to a small grove of Himalayan Silver Birch with Cherry trees alongside and underplanted with Hellebores. The central back Garden is dominated by a Crucifix shaped double sided Herbaceous Border which is enclosed within a mature Beech hedge and transected by a long Pergola which is likewise enclosed within this hedge. There are also two distinct areas for seating and eating and maybe enjoying a glass of wine. To the very rear is the greenhouse and potting area. Also, several raised beds for vegetables and a new Fruit cage under construction. Nearby are the Hens which are living safely within their run.
