A Garden or a Nursery?

G8: A 'cottage garden' that's been constantly evolving and changing since 1980.

This is a plant-lover’s town garden, full of perennials and with plenty for sale.

It reflects the gardener’s fascination and interest in an alphabet of plants from Acer to Weigela (sorry, no Zinnia). There’s a small pond in which most of the frogs have been displaced by a recent influx of newts which sadly don’t seem as keen on slugs! It seems the more I squeeze in, the less weeding I need to do…

Acquiring a greenhouse years ago encouraged me to take cuttings, sow seeds and make a heated propagator. As a result there will (weather permitting) be plenty of perennials including shrubs, for you to buy in aid of Cancer Research UK – please bring some cash and your own bags to carry your purchases away.

And there's a tea garden right next door!
