Snowdrop Ridge, Leicestershire; a delightful cottage garden

Join owner Donna Smith and Rosie for a visit to Snowdrop Ridge in Market Harborough, Leicestershire. This lovely ‘reclaimed’ garden is full of delightful cottage style planting.

A closer look

Reclaimed over the last three years the garden is still a work in progress, constantly changing and evolving. Set over three levels it’s predominantly cottage style planting with self seeding encouraged to give a natural effect. The planting includes many traditional cottage plants and is interspersed with gravel areas, barrel ponds, a greenhouse and lawns with colourful borders. There’s also raised dahlia and vegetable beds, mature and newly planted trees and shrubs and wildlife areas.
