Garden Gallery

Garden Views

The two main parts of the Walled Garden are the Upper Garden and the Lower Garden. The Upper Garden has polytunnels, office and social accommodation including a yurt, a teaching garden, greenhouse and a range of vegetable and flower beds. The Lower Garden has fruit, flower, herb and vegetable beds. Some of the beds are raised to help with disabled access. There is an apple orchard and composting areas. Our ducks and hens live in this part of the Garden too. Outside the main area of the Walled Garden, we also have bee hives, a bog garden and a wild flower garden. Our sheep graze in a nearby field.

The Garden in Winter

During the winter season, we prepare indoor and outdoor growing areas for spring planting. Woodworking activities are especially important at this time of year when the weather can make outdoor working difficult.

There are lots of jobs to be done at this time of year. Growing plants need close attention. The first plants and vegetables are made ready for sale. Grass has to be regularly cut and strimmed.
