Angela offers bespoke planting plans for garden borders designed to attract butterflies & bees.
For the past eighteen years we have been developing and maintaining the shrub and herbaceous borders at the large country garden of Cheriton Cottage. From a mainly spring garden, we have brought the herbaceous borders into the summer. We always use lots of species plants and this creates a soft, relaxed, cottage garden atmosphere.
The borders are a good indication of the kind of planting schemes we produce. The garden is now open once a year to the public and the date can be found on our Events Page.
Our daughter Roxana has taken this a step further. While keeping with the wildlife friendly ethos, she has trained in all aspects of border designing from shrubberies and herbaceous borders to bulbs and grasses, she can offer a much more varied palette of planting and ideas.
Between us all we are confident we can design and supply borders for all tastes and situations.
Roxana is a successful Garden Designer. She studied at Merrist Wood College twelve years ago and was awarded the ‘Best Design Student’ two years running. She can be contacted via the nursery or why not visit her website to view just a few of her beautiful garden designs.
