The Woodland Garden

Located to the side of a small copse our woodland garden is a great success at this time of year.  Recently carpeted with narcissi and snowdrops and containing a range of mature shrubs this area is a joy to explore on sunny days when dappled light cuts through the branches of  silver birch and upright cornus stems.

Even on dull days the fresh golden growth of Philadelphus is like a spotlight in an otherwise shaded corner.  Ferns, sarcococca, and viburnum create the middle storey of growth and briefly, during April, the beautiful hanging blooms of Erythronium ‘Pagoda’ with their reflexed petals offer a final flourish to a perfectly painted woodland scene.
