Bates Green Garden was designed and planted from 1968 by my late wife Carolyn, a self-taught plantswoman, who for many years opened it on behalf of the National Garden Scheme.  This large tranquil garden is unique in its selection of many unusual plants for their colour and distinctiveness.  

The garden is now cared for by Emma Reece, the Head Gardener who many years ago was a student here learning under Carolyn.  She has a small enthusiastic team who regularly welcome groups and garden enthusiasts, to share the appeal of this special garden.
