An Old Rectory Garden in Herefordshire

Another journey into Herefordshire saw us in search of a National Garden Scheme (The Yellow Book) village garden. This garden surrounded a former rectory of the village and it had been renovated over the last seven years. It was a garden of many parts, an arboretum, herbaceous borders, shrub borders, a kitchen garden and a rose garden.

Join us as we take a wander in pictures.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
