Tales from a walled garden

Our garden was once part of the grounds of Great Doods and there are still some very old apple trees in it. We try to keep it in a cottage garden style to fit with the design and history of the buildings. The garden isn't a museum though, we have regular delicious harvests of strawberries, raspberries, red and black currants, walnuts and a eclectic crop of vegetables including multi-coloured beans, peas, chard, courgettes, pumpkins and marrows. It also provides a safe habitat for birds, insects and other wildlife. Julia Monro documented the changing faces of the garden during lockdown.
