More about Furzelea

A 2/3 acre peaceful retreat with abundant colour in the planting which attracts a wide variety of wild life including birds and butterflies. The garden is on a gently south facing slope and has a micro-climate that enables us to grow some more slightly tender plants and bring on others earlier.
There is a black and white garden, lily pond, camomile steps and a courtyard where you can have tea surrounded by more exotics.
