About the garden

Owned by
Paul & Pauline McBride

Surrounded by mature oak trees, the eight acre garden consists of a series of arched borders planted in the naturalistic style. Small paths within the borders encourage exploration through swathes of Miscanthus, Veronicastrum and Echinacea. Large numbers of plants in impressive drifts are one of the unique features of this garden, as well as a huge variety of unusual grasses and rare perennials. RHS Members are offered a 20% discount on admission to the Unusual Plant and Garden Fair on the 3 September 2017.
