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

Meadow cuttings will be available to collect for a limited period by appointment in August or September for those hoping to create their own meadow. Please contact [email protected] to register your interest.
