The garden was started in May 2016 and occupies former greenhouse sites. Foundations of glasshouses remain as a feature of the garden. Initially designed as a planted entrance to the covered plant sales area in 2018 work began to enlarge the garden. The plant sales polytunnel was set further away from the entrance. Raised ponds in the previous aquatic plant tunnel became the raised beds of the expanded garden. Late summer/early autumn is the period when I like a garden to be at it's peak and the plant choices reflect this.
