House Beds

The house walls are covered in climbers. The most impressive is a large wisteria that covers the back of the house. It does not flower for very long but it is spectactular; we have planted a clematis Jingle Bells amongst it which does give some interest in the winter. We also have a Clematis Freckles up a drainpipe which was amazing in Winter 2006/2007 - it really did put on a show, not just a few odd flowers. The conservatory provides a surprising amount of shade to the bed on the south side of the house but there is a very good Iris Ungularis that flowers throughout the winter in mild periods. There are a few more clematis around the base of the conservatory - Blue Angel is always very florific and Niobe on the other side is dramatic, although inclined to get mildew.
