10 Chestnut Way

Repton

A large garden full of interesting and unusual plants designed to have colour and interest throughout the year. The felling of some large trees has given the opportunity for some unusual sculptures and fresh planting. Many benches to sit and soak up the atmosphere enjoying our renowned tea and cake. Overflowing borders and a surprise round every corner.

    A beautiful garden. Leisurely wander through an acre of sweeping mixed borders, spring bulbs, mature trees to a stunning butterfly bed. There is a rapidly maturing arboretum (planted 2005); wooden mushrooms keep popping up and there are fairies at the bottom of the garden! A swathe of Silver Birch trees provides heavy shade in even the hottest of weathers. A prairie style garden, ponds and much much more. You need to go along every path in both directions (at least twice) to see all the hidden treasures. The prairie style planting is full of big and bold plants later in the year. The garden is great for groups of visitors - why not organise a private opening with your club or just a group of friends. We love to meet our visitors; you’ll find us full of practical advice on organic gardening and which plants to choose. You can expect a colourful display throughout the year and of course it will be different from last time you came. We grow many varieties of clematis – whenever you come there will be some in flower – we particularly like the late flowering varieties especially the Viticella types.We have designed the garden since 1988 and maintain it ourselves. We have a large fruit and vegetable plot that we run organically and sometimes have surplus for sale. Grafted tomatoes and grapes thrive in our greenhouse. There are plenty of seats to take in the garden. The conservatory may be used – rain or shine. Most visitors are surprised when we tell them the garden is only an acre – it seems much bigger to everyone – even us on some days!
    At our February opening for Snowdrops you'll also see many Helebores, Daphnes and early shrubs (to be enjoyed with our home made soup).
