One of the most perfect
gardens has been created over the last 25 years in a small abandoned
quarry surrounded by rolling farmland. The site is immediately
interesting, because of all the nooks and crannies, changes of
level and corners created by the quarrying.
The present owners saw
the garden potential and despite it being an inevitable frost
pocket, have achieved a garden full of rare and interesting plants.
From a dry, mediterranean garden at the top to the bog garden
and pool at the bottom, there are plants for all situations and
all times of year.
The nursery is cunningly
situated by the gate, and is a cream-cake temptation for plant-lovers!
