The Woodcutter’s Garden

Show Gardens

The Woodcutter’s Garden is based on the designer's novel The Woodcutter’s Story. The central feature is the hut situated on the edge of a bluebell wood. Angus Rowan, a simple woodsman, carpenter and gardener, and Poppy, a homemaker and devoted wife, live their day-to-day life here.

The garden is surrounded by a wood, and the couple benefit from all it can provide: plants that tolerate partial shade and foraged fruits and nuts.

This rustic and colourful garden is intended to inspire and provoke conversation as well as promote book sales, with all profits going to Cancer Research, and to help train students of Weston College in Weston-super-Mare in gardening ethics and valuable life skills.
