September saw some new developments to our grounds – and much seasonal work.

The Cedar Garden was planted 4 years ago and now needs careful rejuvenating. Work has begun, moving, removing, splitting  or  trying new  plants as necessary to maintain the very successful, rich, colourful, uplifting space we have all year round. Whilst the new seating and viewpoint area, next to the lane,  have shaped up well with a healthy new yew hedge in place.

New planting is happening elsewhere too. Here, under the Sequoia, cyclamen are being established.

The Cedar Garden has lived up to its name as a late-summer flowering garden, with it coming into bloom this September, looking glorious – especially in the lovely sunny days we have had this year. You can see some of the beautiful blossoms in this slideshow.
