We are a 4 acre garden developed over the last 16 years from a green field site by the owners.
There are now in excess of 3,000 varieties of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs filling the garden in varied areas including herbaceous borders, bog garden, woodland, meadow and ornamental vegetable garden. The garden is planted for all year round interest from mass plantings of snowdrops, aconites and hellebores in winter to late summer interest from grasses and late flowering perennials. Much of the planting is drought resistant as the garden is free draining and sloping down through the meadow to the bog garden and wildlife pond. The garden is cultivated on organic grounds and always with wildlife in mind.
With the advent of grandchildren the woodland garden is now dotted with surprises for children and a playhouse with slide.
The garden has been open for The National Gardens Scheme for many years and this year our dates are:-
- Sun 5th June 1.00-5.00
- Thurs 28th July 1.00-5.00
(family day with lots of activities for the children)
- Sun 21st Aug 1.00-5.00
Groups are very welcome by appointment and all our visitors are welcome to collect seed or take cuttings at the appropriate time of year. Entrance is £4 with children free except on the family day when childrens entrance is £2. Refreshments are always available at an extra charge. All monies raised are donated to charity.
If you are looking for somewhere to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life we feel sure you will find it here in our garden on the outskirts of Leeds.
