  • An old-fashioned garden, around an Elizabethan house. Daffodils, herbaceous border, pond, topiary and rose garden. The present layout of the garden began in 1976 when the yew hedges were planted to afford shelter for herbaceous borders kept in flower from May to October. In the garden are pergolas and knot gardens, a garden of old fashioned roses, a medieval garden, a pond, and an orchard.In the spring the whole of the orchard is carpeted with an incredible variety of daffodils, and is well worth a visit. As you explore there are many uncommon trees and shrubs to be discovered. Each part of the Felley garden is like a different chapter in a book. The south and east facing borders have tender plantings, the pergolas are covered in roses, vines clematis and lonicera. The boundary wall shelters small trees and shrubs under-planted with geraniums, hellebores, hostas, digitalis and meconopsis. All the plants and shrubs sold in the nursery are grown in the garden, so you can see them flowering. They are mostly old fashioned and unusual. Some are fairly tender but all of them have survived in this garden 600ft above sea level. The garden specialise in rarer forms of Galanthus (Snowdrops), Hellebores, spring bulbs, Herbaceous borders, roses and topairy.
