Collingham is a very pretty village, containing 62 listed buildings. After more than ten years of neglect, this courtyard has been transformed into a plant lover’s garden, situated behind a 300-year-old cottage. Various features have been salvaged and restored, and are now incorpoated into the design. Interesting planting, borders for scent and colour, a collection of hostas, pelargoniums and annuals in pots give seasonal colour. Look out for tallulah thyme, cheryl chive and hinge and bracket. There are also various pieces of sculpture.
