    this is a gardeners garden something amateurs and professionals can learn from. The garden is well laid out and very relaxing to walk around it has been a favourite of mine for many years and continues to be so. Well done to the gardeners :)

    Its a garden with lots of character and charm that I have enjoyed everytime I've been there and although some areas can look like they need work or are being worked at. It doesnt detract from the relaxed beautifulness of the gardens as a whole.

    A really delightful garden, a relaxed atmosphere. lots of interesting plants and some of the best use of groundcover I've seen...wonderful spreads of Geraniums. The Deciduous azaleas were stunning and the fragrance of the yellow ones quite intoxicating !!
    The nursery has some very good quality plants.
