When the original greenhouse became unsafe, we had to replace it and found, when it was demolished, the site had wonderful views across the sea. The decision was quickly made for the new greenhouse to be built in the vegetable garden and a large terrace and generous herb garden created on the old site.
The latest schemes have included taking control of the hollies by pruning them into sculpted pom poms, old privet hedges being replaced by elegant yew and the area around the gold fish pond, where oregano and hellebore flourish, planted up as a yellow garden.
Our gardeners are always happy to discuss the plants and their suitability for your own garden. Please do ask for a cutting of your favourite as a memory of Polpier. If not possible at that time, we are happy to take a cutting at the correct time of year and have your plant ready for you on a return visit.
