The two compound beds are joined by a double arch to support white flowering wisteria. The planting aims to provide texture, colour and interest throughout the year. Evergreen and climbing plants add some of the structure and height to the beds, whilst herbaceous and exotic style plants are used to add more colour and drama. A large number of bulbs have been used to add seasonal features throughout the year. Although the garden is young and the plants need more time to establish themselves, the progress after the first two years (shown towards the bottom of this page) has been rewarding.
