This will be a chance to see a modern Cottage Garden in which special attention is paid to providing and maintaining a display of flowering plants well into late Summer/Autumn. Hardy herbaceous perennials and ornamental grasses form the core of this array of colour, texture and interest, augmented by a few select half-hardy annuals/perennials. Here we believe the colourful exuberance of late flowering plants to be immensely valuable and the excitement generated to be solace for the soul as the summer season moves on and the nights begin to draw in. The vibrancy and joy gladdens the heart, and for a time, defies the dreary wintertime that lies ahead! Come along and meet the gardener / designer, experience the plants bees and butterflies, enjoy a cup of tea and luxuriate in a late summer glow!
The National Gardens Scheme (NGS) raises money for charity each year, thanks to garden owners and visitors.
