| Spinners is
a stunning woodland garden to visit, with a collection of rare and unusual plants built up over the last fifty years and still being extended. It is small and privately owned, with a nursery on site where plants are propagated from the garden for those who appreciate finding something different. Quite simply, a garden for the plant lover.
Spinners Garden in Late Summer 15
Spinners Bridge 2015
Before the Autumn colours arrive, the garden has a quieter air but is none the less beautiful for it. In the woodland garden one is drawn to the more subtle leaf tones, and the structure of the plants which is contrasted in the planting. Then there is the cork bark of Quercus suber, the varigated bark of Stewartia pseudocamellia, peeling bark of Acer griseum and the glimmering white of the betula. In the beds the summer colour is fading but the seed heads provide their own beauty.
It is also the time of year when we start planting for the year ahead. Moving plants which have outgrown their position and finding new spots for plants we want to add to the collections. Then we need to continue developing the structure of the back garden which is beginning to take shape after the building work on the house last year.
