It hardly ever snows in Welcombe...but when it does... wow!
Depending on what time of the year you visit here, you will find native trees, shrubs, flowers, vegetables and herbs and apple blossom on the fruit trees that have been planted with traditional West Country varieties .
We have a special passion for roses and have, during our years here, continued to plant roses of all colours and types, many of which are the old-fashioned English varieties with heavenly scents.
In the summer, we have an abundance of flowering shrubs, perennial geraniums, sweet peas, daisies and hydrangea all set off by box edging and beech hedges.
Even in the early months of the year, there will be the startling white and green flowers of snowdrops and the dark wine colours of hellebores emerging in the depths of winter to delight when all appears to be dead to the world. This is then followed by the pale yellow of primroses, purple shades of the hedgerow dog violet, wild orchids, daffodils and tulips and camellias amidst many other gorgeous Spring flowers.
Late April into early May is when the bluebells, aconites and celandines take over in such profusion to take your breath away. Autumn brings the many shades and hues of gold, orange, brown and bright yellow as the wooded valleys change week by week and hedgerows fill with berries and wild fruits.
We aim to knit the garden seamlessly into the natural world around us. So, from all parts of the garden the uninterrupted backdrop is of the hills and valley enabling you to walk out of one into the other without fences stopping your freedom to explore.
