In the early 1970’s I visited this garden in it’s creative phase. Planted by Adrian Bloom this 6 acre conifer garden has developed significantly over the last 40 years to show how conifers can be laid out and under planted with great success.
In 2016 I re-visited the garden and was lucky enough to meet its creator Adrian Bloom. We discussed under planting of conifer and he recommended his book Blooms best perennials
One of the good things about conifers is that they show their form and texture all year round particularly when underplanted with grasses and other evergreen plants.
