The Victorian Courtyard Garden
The design has changed organically over the years and even now I am going to re-invent a couple of areas. If some plants don’t work well then after a period of time they are moved or replaced.
Some of our favourite features include: the Coalbrookdale bench, rescued from a field in Wales. The galvanised tank planter, from our loft. The zinc oval planter, fearfully overpriced from The Chelsea Gardener. And our stone cat, chosen by our son as a kid, now adored by our granddaughters. Each has its own story. Also the Cornus Controversa we planted – a stunning Wedding Cake tree that’s difficult to get hold of. And, of course, the roses. The more the merrier!
