More about Boundary Cottage
Lecturer and creator of Bolton Percy churchyard garden Roger Brook regularly writes about his own no-dig garden on his own gardening blog
Boundary Cottage is not a cottage and the garden has few boundaries and opens up to surrounding farm fields. The acre garden has many varied and intimate features, visually connected by sweeping views. Horticulturally unorthodox,especially the fruit and vegetables, the overall effect is quite dramatic.
Visitors frequently remark upon the vast range of plants of all conceivable kinds.They are the result of a horticulturist's lifetime passion for collecting good plants. Allow yourself plenty of time to see them.
Roger's particular passion is for herbaceous perennials. His giant island borders are alive with butterflies, hoverflies, bumblebees and honeybees.
The garden contains the national dicentra collection.
He also maintains 'the village plot' where he uses his own 'naturalistic' methods. This is always open. and can be seen today.
