Mayfield Farm

Colchester

Mayfield Farm, a three acre garden which only a few years ago was largely a field with a huge glass house and poly tunnels. Now we have planted long borders, created a secret garden and yew hedging for topiary. Over two hundred thousand bulbs have been planted in the garden over the past three years to create a wonderful spring display. Shepherds Hut and potting shed.
