This modern cottage garden around an old stone barn is on a tricky sloping site on the edge of Hastings Country Park that gets lashed by the sea wind. The owner Tara, a plant consultant who worked at Great Dixter for many years, built a raised deck, with views of the countryside and sea and a terrace of raised beds. With a backbone of perennials and grasses, the planting changes throughout the seasons. In late summer the beds are filled with Dahlias, Salvias, Euphorbias, Sweet Peas and Grasses, while annuals such as Marigolds and Fennel are allowed to self-seed. Stunning large pots on the deck feature the stately Salvia 'Amistad' with Bunny's Tail Grasses, Dahlias and Stipa tenuissima. There are also hens and the handsome Cockerel Mr. Cockadoodle. Beyond, meadows have been established with young fruit trees and a living willow tunnel.
