About the Event
Rob and Diane Cole moved from Birmingham to Meadow Farm in September 1998 to seek a more rural way of life. To enable them to continue running their plant growing business from this new location they set about building a new ¾ acre nursery in part of their 2 acre meadow, before turning their attention to creating a garden in the one acre plot to the rear of the house.
Today the garden is laid out as a blend of formal and informal areas, and includes a natural stream, paved and seating areas, vistas and enclosed spaces, a scree bed and wide borders of herbaceous planting. The remainder of the 2 acre meadow is now managed as a wildlife reserve to encourage native flora and fauna.
The nursery specialises in herbaceous perennials which are propagated and grown on site. The nursery is not usually open to the public, the plants being sold mostly at Plant Fairs around the Midlands area and Rob will be bringing a goodly amount of plants for us to purchase too!
The reviews from groups who visit Rob and Diane’s garden are exceptional. They have even been told that their garden is far better than Hidcote and Kiftsgate gardens! We very much look forward to being inspired by their love of plants and moved to emulate their creative use of them too. We are sure to want to visit their gardens!
