Description of Garden:
Our cottage garden aims to explore vintage style planting with modern elements in keeping with the design. To be able to peek inside the gardener’s potting shed complete with apron, terracotta pots, oil can, wooden potting bench, metal watering can and simple garden tools with wooden handles.
Each side of the shed will be trellis providing a back drop for colourful planting. To enter the garden, under the metal black archway, a threshold of wooden sleeper holds the modern slate, making up the pathway. Flanking the metal archway woven willow/hazel provide a rustic boarder to the garden.
Each side of the path is home to a variety of colourful established plants descending in size from trellis. One planting area houses a modern grey stone bird bath whilst the other houses a small vintage bee hive; both bring nature to the garden whilst at opposite ends of time.
Flourish Enterprise is a Community Interest Company based at St Catherine’s House, Woodfield Park. One aspect of Flourish is the Walled Garden where we have worked hard too establish a variety of areas for the public to enjoy from vegetable beds to wildlife area. These areas have been developed by both staff and volunteers who are supported to gain skills and confidence on a pathway to education, training or employment.
