Chapel Garden

By Chrissie Day

Beginning a to create a garden at 1400' in an area bleak but named already as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty was a pretty daunting challenge.I have made mistakes but equally have learnt from them to create my haven. I grow flowers for my home, salads, potatoes, some veg, herbs, strawberries raspberries, blackcurrants , blueberries, and rhubarb. My bulb beds and herbaceous borders and trees add to my joy.

The raised beds hold my cut flower bed, herb bed, trial bed , strawberries and garlic beds

Jersey Royals and Rhubarb bed garlic adds to the ambience

Love these leaves

The Ladies and the Meadow over the wall

Nigel's birthday tree

New East facing herbaceous bed double dug filled with old manure then over- wintered before planting.

Large stone built bulb bed filled with cream to plum and blue and white camassias

So excited my new greenhouse

Loving the trees

Silence

Sunshine and showers

Black grouse hiding here

This garden will evolve now
