Here we are back with yet another post in this very occasional series all about garden seating. For parts 8 and 9 we will share with you a collection of seats we found while spending a few days in Devon.
The first set of seats are to be found in the woodland garden of the Stone Farm Cottage Garden and Nursery. This garden boasts the National Collections of Betulas (Birches) and Alnus (Alders). We will look at these trees in a future post.
In the next post in my garden seats series we will share with you the seats we discovered at the RHS Rosemoor Garden.

An amazing array of seats, but the bench (fourth from the last) just blew me away. I don’t know if it is stone or wood but whoever created it had some real artistic skills. 🙂
It was a beautiful bench – it felt like sitting inside an egg! It was hard to tell how it was made and the gardener was out for the day so we didn’t see him to ask. At a guess I think it was made with rough cement over a frame of hazel or willow and then lime washed.
I love a good bench to look out and see the world, love some of the creative solutions you’ve found.
