Members were rewarded by six acres of mature, but ever evolving garden, sited at the edge of a valley. A red painted farmhouse and rustic farm buildings had all been incorporated into a cottage garden style of planting. Swathes of Verbena bonariensis jostled with yellow Achillea. Pots of tender Canas, Lilies and Aeoniums were sited by paths which led to a wild flower meadow with Umbellifers and Scabious. Other features included pond, stream, bog garden and newly planted grass area together with statuary, some specially commissioned, all set in a dramatic landscape.
