A garden to encourage pollinators. Honey bees, bumblebees, solitary bees and butterflies visit in abundance.
Exuberantly planted with a mixture of Shrubs, annuals and perennials, roses and herbs. Long borders and beds planted in mixed cottage garden style, some beds colour-themed. A new herb garden has been made this year with hexagonal-shaped beds and an ornamental beehive at its centre.
In addition Apple, pear and plum orchards, and peaches and apricots against the barn walls. There is a wildflower meadow of around 20 acres with paths mown through it, and a glimpse of the honeybees in their enclosure at the centre. Skylarks nest in the meadow and amongst the many wildflowers are orchids. Traditional vegetable garden in preparation and a large poly tunnel growing salads, vegetables and herbs.
