"Was inspired by your 'garden' at Tatton a few years ago now, have not seen you there since. I looked on line to see a particular hydrangea you showed. Then the website turned out to be easy to use, and packaging of plants, and quality was v. good. Although I cannot use your specialism it is good to know it is there and I like reading about Burncoose in the catalogue. From an Ordinary Gardener"
"You plant photographs are most helpful as they give an indication of plant/flower size and shape."
"Your stand at the chelsea show was really eye-catching and the main reason for this order."
Landscaping a Manor House in Devon
Burncoose were asked to put together a large scale woodland garden with rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas as the main centrepiece. The desire was for a quick and immediate effect so everything was to be specimen sized from the outset. In addition extra large evergreen plants were to be used as a backdrop to give a more immediate effect and additional shelter.
In time these sacrifice plants will no longer be needed and can be removed.
The delivery required 3 separate lorries and simply placing out of the plants took most of the day. Part of the planting was at a new entrance at the bottom of the park a good half mile from the house. In a more windy location nearing the top of the hill a massive hydrangea hedge was created and more choice plants were used in the borders nearer the house.
Rabbits and deer will be a problem in this location but it is hoped that most of the plants are already large enough to escape serious damage.
Once the planting near the house was complete, Burncoose moved onto plant the rest of the garden - see here for more pictures.
