Lovingly kept restored Victorian hedged gardens. Really informative commentary prior to entering. I never knew there were so many different apple trees. Well worth a visit.

Hi Jenny, thank you for your review. In line with responsible gardeners, we limit watering to the nursery plants, the National Collection of Border chrysanthemums, vegetables and rare plants. We do not water the lawns.
