The Bog Garden

The Bog Garden is fed by numerous underground springs, so even in the driest summers it stays wet. The garden as a whole contains over 150 different species and varieties of Iris and 40 Primulas.


The wooden Boardwalk, made by Nigel, elevates you over the Bog Garden, which is a blaze of colour.
