Christine’s Garden

This very large and ever-popular garden contains an amazing variety of plants. Rock walls allow for built up garden beds with improved soil and drainage. English box hedges divide areas including a parterre garden. Large mirrors on the boundary fences create illusions of depth. Deciduous trees provide for Autumn colour.  There will be plenty of plants for sale and a scavenger hunt for children.
