Yesterday, nutcutlet and I went to see a small but exquisite garden on  a modern estate.

When you first enter you are in a small vestibule formed by a Portugese Laurel (Nut will correct all my mistakes on plant names I hopeimage) There are some wonderful Hostas in this area

image

 and glowing bamboo

image

 more hostas

image

 Then the larger area;

image

 with a small pond,

image

 Then even more unusual hostas

image

 This one has a twisted form to the leaves

image

 Miniature Hostas! I didn't know there was such a thing.

Rob the gardener here then very kindly gave us cool drinks and showed us the estate allotments (every estate should have this!)

image

 

image

 delicious black beans possibly Italian

image

 I think this is a homemade polytunnel; brilliant

image

 artichoke now useful for a flower arrangement

image

 Canes fastened with plastic bottlesimage

    It's by appointment only as both the people work freelance. But they really know their stuff and were very patient with my ignoranceimage All the Hostas at the entrance are in pots, which get moved I guess in the Autumn to make way for 60 varieties of Snowdrops!
