Green Garden Trail - The Hollow - Swanage

22 September 2021
2:00 pm
4:00 pm

Dorset Plant Heritage are providing a map and trail of green Biodiverse private gardens open for visits on various days during the week 20-25th September.

The Hollow: This garden shows clearly what can be grown in a challenging climate with salt spray, thin soil and winter extreme rain.  A choice example of ‘right plant right place’ tough plants survive and thrive.  A sunken former stone quarry, makes a surprising garden at the top of a hill above Swanage.  Stone terraces, with unusual shrubs and grasses, form a beautiful pattern of colour and foliage attracting happy butterflies and bees.

This is a lovely late Summer/Autumn garden, with hummingbird hawkmoths amongst the tall scented flowers and foliage.  Display of cacti and airplants.

This garden visit is hosted by Suzanne Nutbeem.

Entrance is free but donations are welcome, to be donated to a local green charity of the hosts choice.

Part of the Dorset Plant Heritage's "GREEN GARDEN TRAIL".
