Visitor Comments

Perennial Hill is such a lovely garden. The creativity and work that has been done is absolutely amazing. We visited the garden today. Julie answered our questions we had about the garden and I will be back as I cannot wait to see what summer will be in the garden. Glenda and Andy.

My husband and I visited this garden at the end of February and were entranced by its beauty. The wild colourful perennial borders, the stunning purple flowering potato tree, the beautiful English courtyard that transports you to another time and the magical woodland trails. Julie and Craig were also so generous with their knowledge, plants and other gardens to visit in the area. We'll definitely be visiting again and recommend all other garden lovers to do so too!

Our second visit to this garden. So inspiring. Helps us to clarify what we want to do in our own little cottage garden on a hill. Julie shares her extensive knowledge so willingly. I'm sure we'll be back.
