Virginia von Celsing's own garden at Pyt House has been designed and planted by Virginia over the last nine years. There were plenty of mature trees in the garden but otherwise some old shrubs, lawn and lots of flint stones. Over the years the flints have been removed, the soil improved and lots of wonderful plants added and hedges grown (for main suppliers please see Links).
The garden now consists of yew, hornbeam and beech hedges, pleached limes, modern perennial borders, a large wildlife pond, an orchard and vegetable garden. New Iris beds were planted two years ago and seem to create more weeds than iris. The garden is broadly organic - beehives in the field house pollinators and chickens help make lots of compost and manure.
Combined admission £5, children free.
