Isle of Wight - Thursday 29 June 2017

Funakoshi and Highwood, Cranmore Avenue, Cranmore, Isle of Wight 

Two very different gardens emphasising the importance of hardy perennials in providing colour throughout the year

Developed over 35 years, Highwood has a mature woodland area as well as a pond and Mediterranean border. Funakoshi has been developed over nine years with many borders displaying a wide range of shrubs and perennials. Both gardens also contain some less familiar plants and all items for sale have been grown in the gardens.
