WoW!

what a fantastic garden. Would you say it was a rockery or a scree garden Owd?
Totally beautiful and such a well laid out garden. How big is it in total? Hard to tell actual scale but this is a big garden.
love the range of shrubs too.

Then an alpine house [I am turning green here] I can see why you were going to Caerleon now.

sorry if this sounds sycophantic but this is stunning. you must be so pleased with it.

There is less than an acre of garden.
Scree and rockery.
2 glass houses full of alpines.
Missed the weekend show in Whitfield near Manchester on Saturday, too ill to travel. Very annoying.

Thanks for the info it looked big. I'd like more garden.
Shame your were ill. Are you feeling better now?
Its not been your year for AGS has it?
Do you care for it all or do you have help?

23 Mar, 2014

 

Wow! That is all I can say! Your garden is beautiful! Love that the garden has different areas and can only dream of having a green house. You have a lovely collection of early spring flowering plants. My magnolia stellata rosa shows not sign of waking up yet...

Just me and my wife, but remember I have not been in work for the 19 years we have been here.
Plenty more AGS shows we can get to.
Virus seems to have gone now and should be back to full working order by Monday (Bows to Hubris)

:o)
glad you feel better. You and wife have been very busy then. well done the both of you.

3 Wows!!! Owdboggy, thankyou for that delightful tour, you have a bit of everything incorporated into it and I absolutely love the way you have set it all out, it looks so natural looking and a garden for a meandering session...
One could get lost out there for hours, lol......

23 Mar, 2014

 

One does!
The full tour takes at least 2 hours, but the garden guided tour for enthusiasts takes all day. And there is more of it than shown in this set of pictures. I did not go round the outside as that bit has been so badly damaged by moles that I need to really re-build before I let anyone see it. Oh for some dry weather.
Glad you enjoyed it.

Very very nice. What are the bulbs either side of your bark path, wondering if they are yet to flower or have done. Thanks

23 Mar, 2014

 

I always enjoy seeing pictures of your garden Owdboggy. Thanks for posting. Where's the "Like very much" button?

Your garden tours are always a treat and this is one of the best - so beautiful, with some very attractive vistas as well as flowers. What a shame you missed the show. so many people have had nasty viruses this winter, perhaps the mild weather is to blame. Thanks for a great blog.

What a treat, thank you for taking us round your beautiful garden, your greenhouses and the alpine houses. As i don't have either i think i will do the next best thing and follow your progress. Like the curved glass in in one of the alpine houses and so much colour in there, they must be lovely places to pop into during the frequent wintry showers we are having this week.

Wow thats some garden!!!, so well kept and yes something for everyone, I've seen pictures of your alpine houses but didn't realise you had such a huge garden, you must be out there all day every day to keep it like this, truly lovely :-)

24 Mar, 2014

 

For Dawnsaunt.
The bulb leaves by the bark path are the remains of Snowdrops. Will add a picture of them for you.
Resi. The curved 'glass' is PVC and it costs more to replace just those bits than all of the glass put together.

24 Mar, 2014

 

Worth it if you can afford it though - very classy!

24 Mar, 2014

 

I can second that comment about the PVC, my top g'house has 8 curved panels, in fact at the moment I have the g'house clear tape on two that have succumbed this past winter......

24 Mar, 2014

 

love all the snowdrops, you certainly have your work cut out there what a great garden!

24 Mar, 2014

 

It was a pleasure to look around your garden Owdboggy. There is little I can say that hadn't been said already.

24 Mar, 2014

 

Thank you. Those snowdrops must have been quite a sight.

24 Mar, 2014

 

Very inspiring and very well done. Thank You.
