Our home and garden is in St Ouen in the largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey. It maybe a small garden measuring just over quarter of an acre but it contains many rare and unusual plants.
Most of the plants are herbaceous perennials from all over the world; all nurtured in accordance with organic principles. A large bog garden contains a collection of over 80 water loving Irises and many other plants that relish the damp conditions, such as Primulas, Lobelias and Trollius.
Other areas of the garden provide the drier conditions loved by plants like Geraniums and the sun loving Salvias; a large collection includes many tender species from Central America. Every day of the year there is a Clematis in flower somewhere in the garden not surprising with over 200 different varieties and species clothing every available support.
