Added a new bed to Orchard

It was bothering me for a while, the empty patch at the back of the Orchard, so earlier this month I decided it was time to add a bit of interest and colour to the area.

The area before:
 

After clearing the area and plotting out the bed, I chose the following plants:

  • Viburnum
  • Buddleja candy pink and sky blue
  • Lobelia
  • Achillea violet and pink
  • Penstemon red and violet
  • Sweet William

New flowerbed in Orchard

I have been busy adding new features to the garden and this week I have finished digging out and planting in a new flowerbed in the Orchard, just outside my greenhouse.

I felt the orchard needed a little extra feature to it, especially as I have already added some flowerbeds to the side.

I am very please with the outcome.

We are opening for 2018

Get your diaries at the ready, because Freda’s Garden is opening up to the public this Summer.

Freda will be opening her garden with a full afternoon of musical entertainment on Sunday 1st July (2-5pm). This is always a popular event, and along with the new changes Freda has brought to her garden, this will be a truly wonderful afternoon not to be missed by both new and frequent visitors. Alongside the entertainment will be light refreshments, Freda’s art gallery (where visitors can purchase copies of her prints) and a variety of stalls. This year Freda will be raising money for the NSPCC.

Freda will then be opening her garden as part of the National Garden Scheme Open Gardens on Sunday 19th August (12-4pm). This will be an opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of the garden in the latter part of the Summer. The afternoon will offer light refreshments to visitors, and again they will be able to visit Freda’s art gallery.
