Synopsis
A retired head teacher, Rod Leeds is the author of several books on Bulbs including the Plantfinders Guide to Early Bulbs, his wife Jane judges for the Alpine Society and is very involved with their local branch of the AGS. They are dedicated to their garden and love of plants. Working with their conditions and soil type which is underlying boulder clay but with a good neutral to alkaline loan topsoil they began to fill their garden with bulbs. African bulbs such as Nerines and Amaryllis were planted in the south facing front beds and Narcissus in the cooler damper ditch area that runs down the west side of the garden, while Frittiarias and Cowslips have been planted and encouraged to naturalize in the long grass. There are bulbs of all shapes and sizes filling every available inch of the garden and with so many bulbs peaking in the spring, Rod and Jane Leeds garden is at its very finest during the spring months. This feature captures the overwhelming beauty of the fresh new growth of bulbs and carefully selected perennials, in all of their wonderful unfurling beauty. Bright fresh vivid colours of spring, that are synomous with spring in English country garden in April.
