More about Andrew's Corner
Andrews Corner, now in its forty seventh year of opening for the NGS, is situated on the northern edge of Dartmoor at approximately one thousand feet above sea level. The garden, of about one and a half acres, faces south and provides a contrast between the rugged grandeur of Dartmoor and the verdant serenity of a cultivated garden. The garden contains a very wide range of unusual trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants for year round effect, including a snowdrop collection, alpines, rhododendrons, bulbs, and maples which provide spectacular autumn colour. Woodland plants, including erythroniums, arisaemas, ferns and many spring bulbs, are at their best in April and May – followed on by the beautiful blue Meconopsis and irises. Heathers, alpine beds, dry stone walls, herbaceous borders and gentians add to the mix and extend the season of interest through to the autumn. In our designing, we have used the different levels to create smaller gardens, with their own particular features and micro climates, separated by trees and rhododendrons but still allowing glimpses of the stunning Taw valley and Dartmoor. This wildlife-friendly garden also includes a kitchen garden, two greenhouses, willow structures and chickens. There are also plenty of wilder areas for grass snakes, slow worms, rabbits, deer and over forty bird species which visit the garden. Quiz sheet, fairy doors and children's playhouse make this a garden for all ages.
