Little Owls

Lee-on-the-Solent

A suburban 40ft x 40ft plot championing the small garden. A variety of shrubs and perennials for shade and sun in a colourful and exuberant style, attracting bees and butterflies, a pond full of newts with hovering damsel flies, a sedum green roof with solitary bee house and a bonsai collection.

    27 Russell Road is a small Victorian house in Lee on Solent - a few minutes from the High street and beach. We are keen champions of the small garden as well as being passionate about recycling and encouraging wildlife. The planting is a mixture of shrubs perennials and bedding - each truly admired by the owners - no plant is given space unless it fulfils this criteria. Driftwood scavenged from the beach is used to display small sculptures including a poppy from the 2014 Tower of London display. The dining area is musically themed with the harp from our son's piano converted into the table and musical quotes surround it. Pallet wood was reclaimed to create our 'Palletial Bug Hotel' and old rotten fence posts have been recycled to create the display stands for our collection of woodland styled bonsais. Chimney pots from our roof hold our hostas and we have a sedum green roof specifically chosen to further encourage bees and butterflies.

There are quirky recycled pieces created by the owners and a small craft studio open for viewing and sales. NGS quilt on display.
