We were not dis appointed, friendly staff, easy to get around garden beds, and a beautiful display of typical British flowers and ground cover. Would have liked to taken some different. Flowers. Home with us, but not. possible due to Australian quarantine laws, have to be satisfied with flower photos.

I visited with my Mum in late August. Difficult to find, but well worth tracking down. Lovely to find a nursery where the focus is flowers and where you can purchase what you see growing in the well designed garden and get good advice from the owners. We found the garden totally inspirational and both went away with ideas and plants. My purchases are all doing well.

Visited following seeing it on Gardener's world, impressive planting of perennials and grasses, but this is a small garden and does not take long to walk round it, not worth £3.50 admission in our opinion, seen better gardens as part of the National Garden Scheme and at least that money goes to charity.
The plants in the nursery are on the expensive side too.

Saw this on gardeners world and decided to visit. The garden wasn't as big as I thought it would be , but when wandering around the layout and planting made it feel huge. It was crammed with flowers and sort of dis-organised, yet it felt like everything was well placed. It was inspirational and of course led to me buying far too many plants! will go again without doubt, probably a little earlier in the year to see different blooms.
