The garden outside Thomas Chatterton’s house has been designed with permaculture firmly at the forefront of it’s being. Rather than producing a garden that needs huge amounts of maintenance we have put together a garden that is mainly perennial and that has minimal watering needs. In it we have also included a pollinator bed that is full of perennial plants that are bee and pollinator friendly, therefore feeding ourselves but also ensuring plenty of food for the creatures we rely on to pollinate our crops.
In the bee bed we have the following…
- Verbena bonariensis
- Perennial Scabious
- Perennial Cornflower
- Field Poppies
In the beds for humans are the following…
- Japanese Quince
- Red veined sorrel
- Alpine strawberries Rhubarb
We will be adding to these beds throughout the year to create a wonderful, perennial and year round garden which is good for man and beast.
