Peppercorn Place was closed over the winter months. We planted some bulbs so now have splashes of colour from the spring flowers. The Garden will be open on Saturdays during the Coffee Shop and also on Sunday mornings.

Peppercorn Place was refreshed during 2018 and now has  four raised beds of two heights made with railway sleepers.  During 2018 these were planted with herbs, flowers and vegetables and everything grew even better than hoped! This year the two higher raised beds will be planted up as a herb garden and a sensory garden by the end of April. 

 Fruit trees - plum, pear and cherry - were planted along one fence; not apple trees as we already have some of these in the Quiet Garden.

The idea is to strike a balance between man and nature so we are trying to be wildlife friendly. The two areas at the back are  being left "natural"  though we will add plants that will encourage bees and butterflies.  There are homes for insects and hedgehogs plus various feeders and a  bath for the birds.
