  • This 2 acre garden is situated on the South facing Holbrook Hill just outside Sampford Peverell, the soil is heavy clay. Early interest includes wildflower meadow plantings with cowslips and fritillaries and the woodland garden. The two acres have many innovative plantings which take inspiration from natural plant communities. Vibrant mediterranean colours are used. The garden slowly builds through the season from rhododendrons and snakeshead fritillaries to a crescendo of bright reds, yellows, oranges, and strong blues and purples in August and September – a time when many gardens are way past their best. The garden continually evolves and there are many experimental plantings – a wet garden with primulae and iris followed by heleniums, big grasses and echinaceas; a stone garden with a butterfly rich planting of verbena bonariensis, salvia uliginosa and ratibida pinnata together with many pokers and agapanthus; and a developing damp summer meadow with asters, helenium species, lobelia species, purple loosestrifes and persicarias. Most recently is an experimental mixed planting of campanulae, achillea, astrantias, sanguisorbas and filipendulas. Perfumes, songbirds and nests are everywhere, with large displays of crocosmia and pulmonarias.
