Throughout the late winter and early spring, our driveway, streams and meadows are filled with early colour from snowdrops, to pretty crocuses and daffodils.
These soon make way to a carpet of bluebells in the sweeping meadow which frames the lawn of the main house. In May the fields and woodland that surround us are filled with wild flower, and the cherry blossom on the front terrace delights.
The rhododendrons introduce summertime and the flower borders then blaze into colour. The borders around the house and our parterre on our front terrace are framed by formal box hedging with the beds filled with stunning herbaceous and perennials plants to provide interest throughout the year. The cottages enjoy a softer planting scheme with much higher densities of perennial planting together with flowering shrubs.
