Garden & Wildlife Area
Situated at the heart of the nursery our garden now extends to approximately three quarters of an acre and has been developed by students over 10 years; two years being spent improving the heavy clay into a workable soil, and planting screening to provide some shelter. We continue to develop the garden which has become a focal point for visitors to our shop to stroll around and enjoy.
The garden also provides a useful asset for plant stock where students can take cuttings and collect seed for propagation. Students also acquire good gardening skills by maintaining the beds, borders, grass and hedges.
Whilst developing the garden we also aimed to provide a wide range of habitats for resident and visiting wildlife with the development of a good sized pond and wooded area. This has been so successful that we have now developed a wildlife area extension to the garden to include a wider range of fauna and flora habitats.
