Monkey Puzzle Garden

This shows some of the plants in the beds in the Monkey Puzzle garden. They include nepeta Walkers Low, lavender, sedums, geum Totally Tangerine and a grass called miscanthus sinensis Flamingo.

Fuchsia garden

This is a recent photo taken of the fuchsia garden, the dead box hedge will have to be replaced this is due to being decimated by box tree caterpillars. This will be a large project to remove all the hedges and replant with a suitable alternative. For now the hedges will be left as the fuchsia plants are growing quickly and will soon be in full flower.
