About the garden
David Chase & Alison Hoghton
In 2009, owners David and Alison set out to create a garden unconstrained by convention and have used herbaceous plants, trees, shrubs and grasses to achieve an unusual cottage style garden, which maintains its beauty throughout the season. The plantsman's garden is laid out as a series of interlinked areas and combine beautiful colour themes, unusual features and interesting planting combinations. Here you will find some garden favourites mixed with more unusual plants and some much more commonplace ones.
The kitchen garden is productive with fruit and vegetables and at the same time is a beautiful part of this garden. Primarily planted in tranquil blues and greens, the meandering path edged with sage, mint and rosemary provide lovely long views with layer upon layer of interest. The woodland walk and wildlife pond area have been created with hints of a garden lost in time and insects, butterflies and birds are a real delight in this lovely setting.
A short 'flight' visiting gardens from around the world is provided in one of the garden's polytunnels. In this undercover space blooms from around the world flourish and you can travel from Morocco to South America in just a few minutes. Throughout Midney Gardens, quirky touches add interest and yet it is a garden truly in harmony with its rural surroundings.
Plants propagated from the garden are available to purchase in the small plant nursery and no garden visit is complete without a cup of cream tea and homemade cake in the small tearoom - all worth sampling.
