The Garden Guide

White Cottage (Cranesbill Nursery)

A garden run in conjunction with a nursery. It has herbaceous borders, flowering shrubs, a stream garden and a wild flower meadow.

Head Gardener's Comment

A peaceful garden blending formal and informal areas with almost round the year interest. Island beds display herbaceous plants, roses grow up through trees as well as in the rose garden. The spring wild flower area is carpeted with fritalleries, primroses and cowslips. An abundance of colour and form are displayed in the stream garden. The rockery is home to many hardy geraniums.

The garden has developed over 27 years from virtually an overgrown field. It is very heavy clay with some free lime although the ph is neutral.

Plants of note

We have a nursery in the garden which specialises in Hardy geraniums and also a collection of echinacea and other less common herbaceous plants.
