More about Capability Barn
The gardens of Capability Barn have been developed over the last 10 years .Although a relatively young garden there were several established trees on the property and these have been incorporated into the garden to give an established feel. The garden is a typical country garden planted extensively with a wide variety of different plants including trees, shrubs herbaceous perennials and bulbs. There are also interesting views over the lovely Nottinghamshire countryside. The garden has many diverse conditions which allow a wide variety of plants to be grown. The sunny south facing border in front of the barn is a hot dry area while there are secluded wooded areas which are home to shade loving plants . In the spring the bulbs really come into there own with over 60 varieties of daffodils including many top exhibition varieties. Hostas, Delphinium, grasses and many other perennials follow. Later in the summer Dahlias and Begonias are the stars. The Garden is continually evolving with new and interesting plants and features added regularly. This years major project is a new ornamental grass bed to compliment the existing grass feature. The Garden will be open this spring but small groups are welcome by appointment at other times. You are assured of a warm welcome, home-made teas and if you like, picnic in the paddock.
