    Tom and I are enthusiastic plantaholics trying to adapt a 6 acre Georgian family garden to the needs of the 21st Century. Considerable alterations have been made in the last year as we have had to adjust to the loss of most of our 100 year old box hedges. There are varied planting areas: spring bulbs - snowdrops, crocus, daffodils and fritillaria under an old plane tree, croquet lawn, gravel, bog and walled gardens, 2 small arboretums and a mound giving views over the National Park. We have many rare and unusual plants and the old orchard contains some very old fruit trees - one very old Sussex apple tree, Rougemont, provided a specimen for the national collection. We have over 100 peonies, including 12 Itoh hybrids between the tree and the herbaceous peony, and many species tulips (if the squirrels have not eaten them!) magnolias, clematis and woodland plants including hostas, epimediums and hellebores.
