More about The Crystal Garden
The garden consists of two distinct areas; an inner garden of sheltered rooms designed to intrigue with twists and turns, filled with colour themed beds, carefully blended foliage shrubs and cosy places to sit and linger. Then there is the open garden with long borders full of shrubs and perennials, the prairie bed which is at its best in late summer/early autumn bursting with colourful asters, rudbeckias, helianthus, the dahlia and annual borders and grasses galore. In addition to the plants there is the Crystal Pavilion and the art wall to view. The wildlife has not been forgotten and there is a natural bramble area where you might spot a white throat. We have toads and lizards and slow worms. Springtime displays include 17 different flowering cherries, together with viburnums, magnolias and camellias underplanted with bulbs and hellibores. From then on something new opens every day. Blooming enkianthus and deutzia are followed by kalmia and cistus. The summer months provide a mass of colour from lilies, kniphofias, campanulas and dierama to name but a few. Asters, fuchsias and salvias are to be found in abundance. There is a glazed visitors room by the bird feeders. So come and enjoy tea and home-made cake if you like.
