According to our neighbours the garden was really beautiful about 15 years ago and was even used as a small market garden.
The framework is still there and one of the loveliest parts of the garden will be the part we have called The Dell. It is a series of granite paths and feature trees (although many of these have now grown too large or been damaged by other plants). I am most excited about restoring this part.
This is my first blog and I plan to record progress on the garden as we carry out work. We have said so many times 'oh we should have taken a before and after picture' so I plan to do this as part of this blog which I hope to make prettier as I learn what I'm doing.
Framework of old (victorian?) greenhouse with self sown trees growing in and around it, plus about 8 years of grass cuttings piled up
Despite appearances The Dell has already delighted us with cyclamen, anemones, and bluebells amongst other wild flowers.
