Jason's Garden, Teignmouth.


Hi all, I think that perhaps this beautiful Clifftop garden here in Teignmouth is worth a visit. The story behind it makes it a must to visit this wonderful place. I did a couple of my own blogs on this garden at the time, they give the story of its creation.

Thanks go to John Hobbs for allowing me to use most of these beautiful pictures, his own site with more pictures is here

Ooh that's fabulous - I haven't been to Teignmouth since my kids were young, so have never seen this garden - spent most of the time on holidays in those days in adventure parks, etc. When they finally grew up and left home, I swore I'd never go anywhere with ropes, gangplanks and covered in bark chips again - except for gardens!

Very nice photos and I enjoyed reading "about me" and your gardening activities. I'm off to see more of your photos now, Bob. I'm tickled that you and the wife like riding your motorbikes. I'm not a rider (cars only for but I can imagine the good times you have when out riding and when staying in your caravan too.

Enjoy GOY...and welcome :)

Jason's garden website has some good photos and I've very much enjoyed reading your own 2 blog posts about the development of Jason's garden. They have put their heart and soul into developing this garden and I really hope it will attract many visitors and that one day the family will now Jason's fate. Oh...if only it would be good news.

I never met Jason, but I knew and worked with both Alan Thomas and Dave Boutle before they went to Yetwene. They were good friends of mine.
I think the garden is a lovely way to remember Jason. If Jason was like the rest of us I know he would have loved the adventure of living and working in Angola. Neil
