susan turner, My Garden (NG9)

Styles: English cottage

small Sissinghurst inspired garden,created over the last 30 years,several different rooms.small rill connecting 2 ponds.over 100 roses and 70 + clematis.several mature trees,including a medlar, now create depth and shade.Have a small intimate white/blue and yellow area.My garden is full of colour all year round.I plant in layers so that I always have a succession of interest.I open the garden for Cancer Research every year.This encourages me to keep on top of weeding and inspires me to try new planting designs and search out new and unusual plants.I do not grow or use many annuals,only things like tall white nicotiana and cosmos.For me gardening is an escape from any stress I might have and it has also helped make so many good gardening friends.
