A 17th century lime washed house is the backdrop to a formal(ish) garden with many fine old trees including an ancient stand of yews. We use sculpted hedges to play with perspective. There is an ice house, vegetable garden, a mound, orchard and two large polytunnels where we grow vegetables biodynamically. We are establishing a nursery where plants attractive to invertebrates are grown. We plant particularly for wildlife so wildflowers and beneficial weeds are encouraged. New beds planted in 2017 along with significant additional planting in the orchard. Champion Trees: Yew
