Rear garden

A productive 0.6 acre garden designed with wildlife in mind and managed organically for the past 11 years supplying the owner with most of their vegetable and fruit year round. The garden has been awarded ‘Gold’ by the Kent Wildlife Trust for wildlife gardening. The garden is divided into different areas as follows: A cottage garden featuring perennials, edible flowers and herbs with a large pond which leads into a wooded area (which supplies logs for the wood burner) with a mix of trees such as birch, ash, alder, flowering cherry, willow and a redwood tree underplanted with a mix of shrubs and some native UK plants such as wild garlic, sweet woodruff, primroses and bluebells. There is an open glade planted with daffodils and snake head fritillaries. This in turns leads into a productive orchard with plums, gages, apples, pears and raspberries. The grassland in the orchard has been planted with native flowers such as daisy, knapweed, yellow rattle, bird’s foot trefoil and red clover and this developing meadow is left to grow tall in the Spring and Summer for wildlife before being scythed in the autumn. There is a wildlife pond which has resident newts and frogs. Adjacent to the orchard is the fruit cage area planted with currants, gooseberries, strawberries, cherry trees and goji berries and the productive vegetable plot on raised beds including two glass houses. As you go further down into the garden, a weaving willow bed supplies rods for weaving and for living willow structures. The owner has also planted a variety of trees such as hazelnut, Kent cobnut, chestnut and walnut. There is a lovely weeping willow and black locust tree. This area also features the chicken shed, a large outbuilding and the composting area. The back gate opens directly onto the canal towpath and a 15 minutes off-road cycle ride takes you to the beach and local amenities.
