A Nursery and Garden in a Walled Garden

Early on in October we made a return visit to one of our favourite Shropshire gardens, Wildgoose Garden and nursery, set in what was until fairy recently a derelict walled garden. We met a group of gardening friends there for coffee, a wander around the garden followed by lunch and then more garden exploration.

The current gardeners and nursery owners rescued it and created a beautiful garden with many unusual perennials with unusual annuals integrated with them. Winding gravel paths take visitors on a wonderful magical tour among the plantings.

A special tea shop adds so much more!

Jack and Laura are brilliant at putting plants together and producing masterpieces of design.

At this time of year we can appreciate perennials and especially grasses as they dry off and flowers turn to seeds. This is such an important element of the ‘New Perennial’ style of gardening as practised here at Wildgoose.

It makes a garden more of a pleasure to visit if you find plants you do not recognise and can’t put a name to. Friends we were with at Wildgoose were keen gardeners but there were still plants we could not recognise.

There is just so much to see in the remarkable garden and a good little nursery with treasures to buy. In my next post I will share the photos I took during this visit but have not used here.

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.
