About the garden

The woodland area is based on a theme of regeneration. Rotting tree stumps are surrounded by new sapling growth and interplanted with woodland alpines.

The woodland opens out at one end  into a woodland pool, and a boggy area planted with moisture loving plants.

At the other end a rocky outcrop leads out of the woodland and is planted with rock huggers, crevice dwellers and alpines suitable for sunny raised beds and scree gardens.

The rocks lead onto a more formal area of paved terrace and a selection of troughs and containers, each with a different selection of suitable plants. A large water trough with an impressive waterspout links the terrace back to the woodland pond and the woodland itself.

Over 250 varieties of Plants and over 1400 plants in all. See the full list of plants here.
