HARTLEY BOTANIC SHOW GARDEN 2016
A glasshouse structure attached to a walled garden is the focal point of this large garden. It is both folly and retreat, and houses tropical, aquatic and carnivorous plants. Views of the surrounding woodland can be appreciated and enjoyed from within the glasshouse.rnrnThe garden celebrates the British-engineered glasshouse structures created by Hartley Botanic. It features an element of traditional walled garden complete with colourful mixed perennials, fruit and vegetables. The surrounding woodland contains mixed native and ornamental planting in a naturalistic style. Around the pool the planting is soft with a gentle colour palette of white, blue and pink, which helps to create a feeling of enclosure. Photos taken by Gary Rogers & Catherine MacDonald.
