Wild Meadows Garden

A new garden with a different look. There was no garden here 5 years ago, just paddocks. Wild Meadows Garden was designed in a naturalistic way with floral meadows and woodlands to complement each other, hence the name 'Wild Meadows'.

Skilfully planned, the plantings of trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, bulbs and grasses display seasonal change from spring subtle greens to summer riots of colour, autumn berries and leaves to winter russets and structure. There are many unusual plants that will excite any garden enthusiast.

This garden is open at least 1 weekend per month or by appointment. Please check the website for opening days, times and prices.
