Head Gardener, Fergus Garrett on the Orchard.

This is our principal area of meadow stretching almost the whole south side of the garden. Studded with apples, pears, plums, hawthorns and crabs, the meadow stretches into the landscape marrying us to the surrounding countryside. The long grass contains communities of crocuses, daffodils, four types of terrestrial orchid, and Adder’s Tongue ferns
