The Garden Guide

Shipley Gardens

Shipley Gardens surround a 17th Century Wye Valley homestead standing upon the site of previous dwellings that since Roman times have administered the adjacent ford and former ferry .The garden was made by Bob Macadie after 1970 with plantings of shrubs, herbaceous perennials and wildflower mixes. Garden Rooms are moulded into the base of the escarpment next to the flood plain of the valley floor. The owner-designer sees his garden as an example of "Robinsonian Twentyfirst Century". William Robinson wrote a book on The Wild Garden which continues to influence an ecological approach to garden design.
