GARDENING – WI TH CAMI L LA BASSE T T-SMI TH


© Ashwood Nurseries


There are so many different parts to this garden from Stumpery to South African Border and The Crab Apple Walk to The Dell. Water is also an important feature, not least due to the garden’s position alongside the canal. The pool and waterfall is the oldest part of the garden and framed perfectly by alpines and a cacophony of conifers. The umbrella pine towering over me here giving me some


idea of what my 2 foot £25 specimen from the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2017, may look like in years to come.


Away from this horticultural haven, the nursery is full steam ahead for 2018 with a first time Hellebore display planned for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, with plants currently being frozen at -1 degree in order to hold them back until May. Ashwood is famed for its Hellebores and displays an impressive collection from delicate pinks to deep rich wines and sunny apricots, many with the most beautiful of markings. Species, inter-species and cultivars all gather here for their extended Hellebore Hogmanay! Intensive breeding is in progress and the recently launched Sunset and Sunrise shades offer an exciting new development in their yellow and neon introductions.


The nursery also houses surely the largest collection of hardy cyclamen in the UK – their pale pinks and whites as pretty as a picture as if the Sugar Plum Fairy has danced across the foliage sprinkling her magic where she trod. Cyclamen coum is such an easy plant to grow, perfect for banks and borders and quick to spread and form carpets to rival any you may have bought in the January sales!


When asked when his favourite time in the garden is, John Massey always answers “today”. Such an excellent response as gardens are ever changing and there is always something to love and admire. Maybe we should take this as a reminder to stop and appreciate the now and reflect on how lucky we are to exist on this plant laden planet!
