An artist’s garden, now 33yrs mature, with an eclectic mix of hardy perennials in a framework of topiary hedges and sentinels of all shapes and sizes. Charlotte Molesworth has created this lovely garden on a blank canvas over many years, mainly from cuttings and seedlings on a minimal budget, and now maintains it single-handed. It has good fertile soil and is sheltered from the north and east, but it is now being opened up again to the south-east to create more air flow for the boxwood. There are also beautiful established wildflower meadows. Particular attention to the needs of nesting birds and small mammals lend this garden a rare and unusual quality.
The Garden is 100 yards down an unmade track to the west of St George’s Church.
Meet at 6pm in the Library car park where we can sort out cars.
