The Long Border

The Long Border

This area of the garden is currently undergoing renovation. Over the next two years it will be redesigned and in some areas, replanted. Nestling under the East wall and primarily an area of spring colour, with bulbs of Galanthus, Narcissi and Camassia mixing with pulmonarias and aquilegias, new plantings will seek to lengthen display time and remove or restrict any plants that have outgrown their space or interfere with the development of the espaliered fruit trees grown against the wall.
