The garden of Feeringbury Manor is filled with flowers and at all times of the year there are interesting plants to be seen. With streams and ponds there is a variety of soil types, so many varied plants grow happily. The lay-out is structured but the planting is informal. The 50yd long steel trellis built by Ben Coode-Adams backs a beautiful long border at its peak in the Summer. A circle of wild flowers make a delicious entrance to the garden. Yew hedges surround intimate areas and the valley down to the river makes a wonderful view. Throughout are various steel gates, seats a gazebo and sculpture made by Ben Coode-Adams
The garden has been made over the last 30 years and is now well established. It surrounds a pretty 14th century house.
There are different notable plants at all times of year. In May the tulips are stunning with the apple blossom, June takes over with early clematis, peonies and oriental poppies. In July the romneya is at its peak and many phlox start flowering as well as dahlias, hoheria and hollyhocks. September is the time for the daisy family, including michaelmas daisies as a speciality
