The stream garden was the first garden area we created when we arrived on site in 2015. It is also the entrance to the nursery and gardens so has to be extra special. A natural stream runs down the western boundery of the nursery area so we made use of this to create the entrance. The banks are fairly steep into the stream bed so I have planted this with plenty ground cover and moisture loving plants. We installed a bridge back in 2015 at the star and the planting has been arranged around this. In the middle of summer this area is lush with varied colours and shapes of foliage and flowers. The stream extension was created in 2019, clearing the grass and weeds from the banks and area on both sides. Again I’ve planted shrubs, perennials and bulbs to create lots of all year interest.
