Inwood Garden

Lindsay and Irvine Morrison welcomed us to their garden. They started it from scratch in 1984 in what was rough pasture. It has changed and evolved over the years. The 26 island beds are packed full of rare and unusual plants as well as old favourites. The woodland part of the garden was begun in 1992. Trees and saplings were removed to make wide, grassy paths. A conservatory and two greenhouses provide space for their begonia and streptocarpus collections as well as other less hardy plants. The pond is a haven for frogs and newts.
The beautiful colour and texture combinations has provided us with inspiration on previous visits and we were looking forward to seeing what they had planted in their Spring garden. We were not disappointed. Tulips added vibrant highlights to the basic planting. We were astonished to hear that all of the tulips will be rehomed to another garden when they finish flowering because they only give of their best in the first year.
As we entered the garden past the front of the house Irvine proudly told us how he cut away at this tree to emulate a cloud tree as seen in Japanese gardens.
