At the front, a rose and peony garden with nectar-rich cottage garden plantings contained within a geometric bed design and enclosed by native mixed hedging, a magnet for butterflies, bees and birds. The rear garden features a traditional long border connecting a pond, bog garden and woodland planting with a patio planted around by strongly scented varieties.

About 16 Whitelow Road

The gardener, a trained horticulturist and plant enthusiast, previously gardened on a large scale in the countryside and one of the underlying design impulses has been to capture, in miniature, something of each of the types of planting that a large country garden enables. This approach also allows the creation of multiple wildlife habitats without sacrificing anything in terms of visual appeal and horticultural interest. The garden aims to optimise the often wasted potential of front gardens in town settings; to fully utilise boundaries for planting, encouraging wildlife and visual impact by showcasing vertical planting; and, above all, to provide interest and beauty year-round.
Refreshments available; plants for sale.
