During 2020 we have been busy redeveloping our garden areas.

We moved to the delightful village of Alne in the Hambleton District of North Yorkshire in December 2016 with the idea of redesigning the garden areas straight away!

Almost 4 years on we have realised most of our design ideas and in waiting a while know we have avoided some expensive mistakes as well as introducing some features we hadn’t originally considered.  How important it is to live with what you have for a while to appreciate opportunities with different aspects, to learn about light levels, soil types & orientation. Time also allows for clarification on best use of space.  All of these things inform knowledge and understanding with regards to planting combinations.

Autumn 2020 & Spring 2021 will be exciting times for us as we embark on our journey of planting up our new garden spaces.  Our National Collections have wonderful new homes too, their locations carefully chosen to perfectly align their individual requirements to enable them to thrive.So we invite you to come along on this journey with us.  Be in at the beginning & see how the narrative of our gardens grow, develop & mature as they evolve into a real life hardy perennial plant library.From 2021 we will be offering the opportunity to pre-book private visits to our Nursery & Gardens.
