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
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'
