This short video gives you a flavour of a visit to my garden.
Where is my garden?
Our home and garden is in St Ouen in the largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey.
It maybe a small garden measuring just over quarter of an acre but it contains many
rare and unusual plants. With over 2,000 mainly herbaceous perennials from all over
the world; all nurtured in accordance with organic principles. A large bog garden
contains a collection of over 80 water loving Irises and many other plants that relish
the damp conditions, such as Primulas, Lobelias and Trollius. Other areas of the
garden provide the drier conditions loved by plants like Geraniums and the sun loving
Salvias; a large collection includes many tender species from Central America. Every
day of the year there is a Clematis in flower somewhere in the garden not surprising
with over 200 different varieties and species clothing every available support.
