  Shade Garden            
                 
 

This garden was redesigned and constructed in 2003. Two trees were removed and replaced with more decorative specimens; Cercis Canadensis and Sorbus Vilmorinii. The Cercis when mature, will and provide a visual link with the Mediterranean garden through its colour. The Sorbus provides interest throughout the year, particularly Autumn, when its foliage gives a lovely display turning orange. Berries are an added bonus.
The area has a formal apprearance through the use of box edging and choice of shrubs. These include Camellias, Ilex crenata,and Sarcocca Hookeriana. Pulmonarias give early spring colour followed by the narcissus 'Cheerfulness' and Tulip 'Spring Green'.These bulbs are planted to echo the shape of the box edging.
A bench provides a place to pause and view the Gravel Walk. The pergola behind it is clothed in the two summer flowering Clematis 'Perle D'Azur' and 'Comtesse de Bouchaud'
