My garden

The hidden garden Freshfield through the seasons

My garden as you can see is in what I like to call a state of evolution.

The borders are ablaze with oxeye daisies in early summer followed by other wildflower such as devil’s bit scabious, ragged robin and ladies bedstraw – a haven for bees and butterflies and other insects attracted by the wildlife pond.
In the autumn the first frosts glisten on the yellow and red fruits of the malus (Crab apples) Golden Hornet and Red Sentinel.
The back of the garden is devoted to a kitchen garden with herbs and seasonal produce planted in raised beds. Leaving seed heads and perennials creates interesting affects with a covering of frost and a heavy snowfall once again changes the look of the garden.
