japanese inspired garden

I'm delighted to be part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS or 'the yellow book') in 2020, opening only by arrangement.

Entry is £4 per person (which goes straight to NGS). I can also offer an additional package for an extra £4 (£8 per person total) to include a talk and/or garden tour, my A3 folded full colour garden guide with map, info and photos, and refreshments (tea/coffee/cold drinks, snacks eg. cake/biscuits).


About the garden:
I took ownership of 'The Willows' in August 2017 and immediately went to work on the garden, having brought literally thousands of plants with me. The presence of a koi pond helped me decide to go with a Japanese theme.

I am a passionate plantswoman: the garden was never going to be a strict interpretation of Japanese gardens - which tend towards a limited range of plants and minimal planting. .For this reason I am calling it a Japanese-inspired garden.
