From the Moors to the Sea Garden

Designed by Alan Titchmarsh with Kate Gould. The garden is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of RHS Britain in Bloom and of Alan’s own 50 years in horticulture.

From the Moors to the Sea Garden

The garden itself is split into two distinct areas, a raised upper section of moorland with wild turf and flowers, native hedging and Pine and Birch trees linked by a gently meandering stream to a lower coastal section where nature has been tamed to create a private haven. Palms and large shrubs provide privacy and some shade against the rocky backdrop and a small beach hut creates shelter and a place to sit and reflect.

From the Moors to the Sea Garden

The moorland contains native plants most of which are small and interesting and attract wildlife; Sanicula, Mercurialis and Sundews are woven through a rough turf and meadow grass tapestry through which ferns and tussock forming grasses provide larger punctuation.

From the Moors to the Sea Garden

The coastal garden is by contrast an actively gardened space with plants that will thrive in the mild climate by the sea: Echium, Agapanthus, Cordyline australis, Teucrium and
Kniphofia to name a few.
