Aston Clinton Gardens

Aylesbury

These two cottage gardens, one well established and the other having recently undergone a radical redesign by its new owner, share a basis of seasonal interest underpinned by evergreens and perennial planting. At The Lantern Cottage, spring hellebores and an abundance of tulips give way to an early summer display of roses, peonies, bearded iris, alliums and climbers including various clematis, wisteria and akebia. A wide selection of salvias and herbaceous perennials, mostly raised from seed and cuttings. Pelargoniums provide yr-round colour in the conservatory, and the greenhouse is always full! At 101, the new owner took up residence in autumn 2015, quickly establishing raised beds for vegetable production, a number of fruit trees and a variety of soft fruits. There is also a wildlife pond, an arbour overlooking the Victorian greenhouse, plus herbaceous borders, ornamental grasses surrounding a red kite sculpture, and varied container planting. Wildlife is encouraged to visit.

    The Lantern Cottage. A large bramley apple tree dominates the small front garden, with low box edging to the borders which are filled with snowdrops, narcissi and tulips and various shrubs and perennials. Rosa banksia lutescens (the rarer single form) adorns the front of the cottage. In the rear garden, narrow brick paths wind through small lawned areas with sunny and shady borders, a vine-covered pergola, a tiny pond, various small trees and a cut flower patch. The greenhouse has dahlias and chrysanthemums for cutting, and a wide variety of perennails, esp. salvias are raised here.
    101 Green End Street underwent a radical redevelopment in 2015; a largely barren and neglected area has become a haven for birds, insects and amphibians as well as a source of interest for plant lovers throughout the year. Beautifully designed raised beds produce a range of vegetables and there are trained fruit trees. Gravel, bark and paving provide a pleasing variety of textures to the pathways which lead through the garden, passing the productive greenhouse and wildlife pond and leading around the metal red kite sculpture surrounded by 'prairie' style planting.
