A Canopy of Green

G16: Four areas of borders, trees and structures created over 25 years lead to a wilder canalside area.

Over 25 years, a virtually empty garden space that leads down to the canal, has gradually been converted into four areas, with borders, trees and structures: at the top, traditional planting with flower beds, pergola and greenhouse (wheelchair accessible); steps down through a rockery lead to a vegetable plot and fruit cage; borders either side of an arch bring you to an open, sloping space (still a work in progress) with two apple trees and some new shrubs being introduced in front of a hawthorn hedge.

Finally, through a gate and across an access road, you reach a wilder space bordering the canal that has been planted with five native trees.

And the Head Gardener is also a wood turner! A range of pots and bowls will be for sale – all proceeds to Cancer Research UK.
