This long garden is both a family garden and a fruit and vegetable producing area. The garden is now entering its second season with its new owners, and is therefore a ‘work in progress’.  Come and see what an evolving garden looks like – children especially welcome.

Fruit Trees

To the inherited mature planting at the top of the rear garden, and apple trees further down, they have added two cherry trees, two espalier pears, tayberries and blackberries grown along fences, plus strawberries, raspberries and blueberries grown in fruit cages.

Vegetables

Vegetables grown in newly constructed raised beds (made from second hand pallet collars) include courgettes, mange tout, beans, carrots, plus tomatoes and lettuce. Various herbs are grown in pots. The front garden features a hazelnut tree.
