Yesterday, nutcutlet and I went to see a small but exquisite garden on a modern estate.
When you first enter you are in a small vestibule formed by a Portugese Laurel (Nut will correct all my mistakes on plant names I hope) There are some wonderful Hostas in this area
and glowing bamboo
Then the larger area;
with a small pond,
Then even more unusual hostas
This one has a twisted form to the leaves
Miniature Hostas! I didn't know there was such a thing.
Rob the gardener here then very kindly gave us cool drinks and showed us the estate allotments (every estate should have this!)
delicious black beans possibly Italian
I think this is a homemade polytunnel; brilliant
artichoke now useful for a flower arrangement
Canes fastened with plastic bottles
What super pics........can u do me a mural of No. 5 AJ ? Looks so cool and refreshing whilst I'm baking here.......oh, and pop a couple of those smart fish in too perhaps ? That way I can just look at the mural and forget the garden
Seriously...........what a gem of a place...........thanks for showing us
It's by appointment only as both the people work freelance. But they really know their stuff and were very patient with my ignorance All the Hostas at the entrance are in pots, which get moved I guess in the Autumn to make way for 60 varieties of Snowdrops!
