The garden in April..

Our garden must have been ‘designed’ by the previous owners as a Spring garden, like many in Cornwall, as it does seem to be at its best in April and May with plenty of Rhodedendrons and Azaleas.

And beyond the well there is a naturalised area with specimen shrubs and trees which looks particularly good now too with the star magnolia out and the acer coming on. There are plenty of Azaleas too.

So one of our contributions is to plant some lovely pots up and to plant about 250 bulbs, many Summer-flowering, so that should help maintain interest. I’ve also created 2 new borders at the front of the house with a selection of shrubs such as Pieris which is one of my favourites and always reminds me of the Lake District where it seems to thrive. I’ve also planted white flowering bulbs there. We’ll see how we get on.
