Large Entrance Border

This large border starts after the bridge and lines the right hand side of the track up tot eh sales area and nursery. It is mainly planted with large swaths of large leaved and striking plants so that in summer there is not a bit of ground to be seen. It becomes a tapestry of colour and texture.

Further up the track the border narrows and this becomes the Shade Border. Under the canopy of Beech and Willow this border is mainly dry and shady. So here we find many examples of plants that cope very well in those conditions.
