Repton NGS Village Gardens

Derby

Repton is a thriving village dating back to Anglo Saxon times and was where Christianity was first preached in the Midlands. In the crypt of the church there are still well preserved remains of Saxon architecture. The village gardens are all quite different ranging from the very small to very large several of them have new features for 2018. Askew cottage is a professionally designed garden and has many structural features linked together by curving paths. 10 Chestnut Way is a plantoholic's garden often likened to a tardis - be prepared to be surprised. Holme Point is an exquisitely designed small garden, formal beds are overflowing with perennial plants, 22 Pinfold Close is the smallest garden but is packed full with a special interest in tropical plants. Repton allotments is a small set of allotments currently undergoing a revival with community area and attractive views across Derbyshire. Woodend Cottage is an organic garden with stunning views from the grass labyrinth.

    Askew Cottage - The owner, a professional garden designer, has disguised the rectangular site by using curved paths to link together the different areas. Beech, box and yew hedges provide structure and the planting within is constantly evolving. Features include a circle of meadow grass set within a cloud box hedge, trained apple trees, a small wildlife pool and experimental areas of perennial planting.

    10 Chestnut Way - Wander through an acre of sweeping mixed borders, spring bulbs, mature trees to a stunning butterfly bed, maturing arboretum, established prairie. Meet a pair of passionate, practical, compost loving gardeners who gently manage this plantsman's garden. Designed and maintained by the owners. Expect a colourful display throughout the yr. Plenty of seats, conservatory if wet. Prepare to be surprised, it is often described as a tardis.

    Holme Point - A beautiful small formal garden with lush plantings of trees, shrubs, roses, clematis and perennials. The rear garden has raised beds for fruit and vegetables, mini woodland and water feature. A garden for all seasons with full wheelchair access and many seats.

    22 Pinfold Close - Small garden with an interest in tropical plants. Palms, gingers, cannas, bananas. Mainly foliage plants. Safari hut included in redesign project.

    Repton Allotments - Set on the edge of Repton with lovely views over the Derbyshire countryside. There are about 20 plots growing many types of vegetables and flowers too. Includes community area.

    Woodend Cottage - Plant lover's garden with glorious views on a sloping 2½ acre site developed organically for yr-round interest. On lower levels herbaceous borders are arranged informally and connected via lawns, thyme bed, pond and pergolas. Mixed woodland and grassed labyrinth lead naturally into fruit, vegetable and herb potager with meadows beyond.
