The Thicketts

This artist’s garden will be open together with the artist’s studio. The garden has been planned without a lawn to give year-round interest, with plants selected for their distinctive leaves, strong form and varied colour. 

The walled garden includes palms and delicate plants alongside traditional cottage garden staples. It is designed for sitting in, with seating provided in different areas so the owners can move with the sun and that cup of tea, while contemplating the view. Tea, coffee and cake will be available for purchase for visitors wishing to do the same. 

15a Church Street

Interesting borders wrap around this bungalow’s garden, which includes plants for both sun and shade. There are productive raised beds and innovative ideas for growing fruit and vegetables, as well as lots of places to sit and enjoy the garden.
