Synopsis
They have designed the garden in colour coordinated borders which complement and contrast beautifully with the borders around. They have a very large collection of Clematis Viticellas growing around the garden over rustic arches, and rustic trellises but also on supports to give height to each border. Last year Margaret created a series of ‘windows’ made from rustic wood and has grown several varieties of Clematis Viticella on these, including Clematis Viticella ‘Polish Spirit’ which in my opinion is the star of the show. Grafton Cottage is a very traditional cottage style garden with some more quirky elements, to make it much more contemporary. It is open for the NGS several times during the Summer.
