Open Garden In aid of the British Red Cross 2016

Find the sub-tropics in Fareham, via this small garden. Influenced by the flora of Australia and New Zealand, it includes many rare and unusual indigenous species. The four climate zones – arid, temperate, lush fertile and shady fernery – are all densely planted to make the most of the dramatic foliage. This is definitely a garden for ‘plantaholics’ and those with a passion for weird and wonderful plants. This won the ‘gold standard’ in Fareham in Bloom, and was the overall winner in the ‘plantsman's small back garden’ category in 2014. The garden featured in Amateur Gardening Magazine in September 2014.
