My wife Ros and I welcome groups to visit our garden, Sandhill Farm, Hampshire by appointment. The garden is at its peak in June and July when we host daytime and early evening visits. At other times morning or afternoon visits may be possible.
Our garden is around 2 acres in area, a sloping hillside on light, slightly acidic, sandy soil. The planting is naturalistic with a large area of meadow and a wide variety of trees, shrubs and perennials. We are particularly proud of our flowering dogwoods which are a wonderful sight in early summer
The terrace features numerous pots and containers; there is a small gravel garden and two ponds.
Groups are typically 30 to 50 people. We can accommodate a coach and have parking for several cars on the drive, others on the lane. Andy will give a guided tour of the garden for about an hour, explaining its development and introducing the plants (and the cats!).
Daytime visits include tea or coffee, cakes and biscuits. Evening visits; wine and nibbles.
We have plants and books for sale.
