Something a little different
It would be easy to walk round a garden and enjoy those plants that scream out and demand our attention. Of course, these plants are worthy of such attention. Persicaria alpina for example, quickly fills a space that previously looked like a gap in the border, and looks beautiful at the same time. However, smaller and less 'thuggish' plants can easily be overlooked. With that thought in mind, we would encourage visitors to take their time and enjoy the many 'quieter' plants that we have. Some are unusual, some rare and some that have simply fallen out of favour and deemed 'out of fashion'. We plan to add more of these plants to our gardens and share them with you here also.
