18 Highfield Road

This small terraced garden packed with plants was designed by Melita and has evolved over the past 16 yrs. This plantswoman is a plantaholic and RHS Certificate holder. An attempt has been made to combine formality through structural planting which is softened by cottage style planting of perennials.
