In springtime the main planting feature are the tulips. The mismatched colours and varieties make a glorious display.
Some of the tulips are placed together whilst others have enough interest in them to be planted alone.
In many ways though the flowers are a secondary feature in the garden. A common sight throughout the Isle Of Wight is one of garden gnomes and here you are spoilt for choice.
The gnomes play an important function in the garden from playing music...
...to preparing the plot ready for some summer sweetpeas.
Gnomes are not the only statues in the garden. Situated in the middle of the tulip bed you will find a classical figure complete with its own horticultural accessory
The main section of the garden is centred around a map of the Isle of Wight. It's been some time since the moat was filled with water but the effect remains the same. Whatever the season the garden is a delight.
