The spring fed main pond supplies the Water Garden with a constant flow of water. It is a colourful area and has something to offer at all times of the year. The bank of snowdrops starts the year accompanied by hellebores towards the top of the Water Garden.
The water comes from natural springs
Spring colour in the Water Garden
Spring comes with a burst of colour from the tulips, laburnum, azalea, lysichiton, euphorbias, persicaria, alliums, rhododendrons, hesperis and geranium.
Persicaria bistorta 'Superba' & Allium 'Purple Sensation'
The summer brings into flower the primulas, astilbes and some large leaf plants like ligularia, hosta, rodgersia and zantedeschia. The summer house is a wonderful peaceful place to take a break on those hot summer days.
