Open Garden for Red Cross
6 May 2018 - 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm| £4
Set in a woodland glade on slightly acid soil a two acre garden created over the last twenty years. The garden at Hartwood House keeps on growing in size, and range of trees, shrubs and perennials. Two enthusiastic gardeners have managed to compromise their ideas to create a garden that is a delight for the plantsman who will spot many unusual shrubs and trees (him) and pleasing to the casual visitor who can enjoy the colours and contrasts of foliage and flowers (her). The two acres are closely cultivated and lie within a sheltered glade surrounded by huge oak and beech trees. A vegetable garden is being planted for the years crops . Beyond the main garden there is another six acres to be explored. Through a decorative gate an old cider orchard is being replanted with indigenous trees with cut grass paths to follow. On the other side of the house there is a mature beech and oak wood to enjoy. There will be camellias, lots of rhododendrons, hellebores, tulips and narcissi to provide colour and contrast. A variety of additions will keep children entertained whilst not offending the serious garden lover.
