The History of the Walled Garden
The Walled Garden was built in the first or second decade of the 1800s to grow fruit and vegetables for Benhall Lodge and the owner’s London home
2020. It is our intention to update the lists of plants that we have in stock on a monthly basis. These lists will never be totally reliable, as attractive plants or those we stock in small numbers can sell out fast. However, the lists are always a useful reference, especially when planning new borders. Most of our stock is selected on its ability to grow in a drier East Anglian climate, but there are exceptions. In this area, the soils range from coarse sands to heavy clays, and these soils will influence plant selection. The best option is always better to visit the nursery to see what is available.
