Intensively planted ½-acre with views of the Malvern Hills, which has been developed by a hardy plants enthusiast. The continually evolving beds and borders containing a wide range of shrubs, bulbs and herbacous perennials. These have been chosen to provide interest throughout the year, with emphasis on leaf form and colour.
"We have been developing our garden since we moved here in 1994. It had been totally neglected for several years and, to some extent, we had a blank canvas though several existing trees placed constraints or influenced the type of area. I have become a keen 'hardy planter' during these years and much prefer shape and form to brightly coloured annuals. I strive to have plenty of interest for most of the year and am continually rearranging and planting."
