We bought this 1 acre property 8 years ago & have worked all that time on the garden & have done very little to the cottage, but this summer the renovation will begin. If you came to our last year's opening you will see we have been busy over winter & have completed the south west (Front Boundary) of the garden where we had the huge old tree with a big split removed. We have also extended the rockery, added stepping stones to the Laburnum walk & made the old small fish pond into a bog garden.

We have imported many of these orchids over the last 16 years from all over the world & as soon as they are out of quarantine we plant them directly into out well drained, open garden soil in the woodland. We have many different ones & they will be in flower from October through November for the Spring open garden. More Info »
