The Old School

Created from brambly wilderness since 2015, the garden is on unforgiving rocky remains of quarried stone from building the Old School. South facing, views of Menai Strait. Sheltered from westerly winds dry, free draining soil suits agapanthus; ginger lilies; salvias and enormous echiums. Winding paths, steep in parts, mean accessibility is limited. Biomass heated greenhouse. An ongoing project.

About The Old School

Created since 2015, the Old School garden is challenging to work, with steep slopes; chunks of rock; very dry at times. But the plants that love it, really love it. English roses; giant Fennel and Angelica; towering Echiums, Magnolia grandiflora, topiary here and there. Fire garden for cookouts; sheltered courtyard garden. Summerhouse and innovative cold frames made from reclaimed materials. Fantastic views across Menai Strait towards Llandudno and the mountains of Snowdonia. Paths are steep and winding, no lawn, but places to sit and enjoy the views. Obsessed with a garden? It can be a thing of madness, but the joy of creating and growing is good for the mind, spirit and body.
