The GARDENS at NORTON MEDE
At Norton Mede we hope our guests will enjoy our large gardens. The front garden is mostly laid to lawn with ornamental shrubs bordering it. (Predominantly Hydrangea{Hortensia} which have been there for over fifty years.)
Behind the house there is a Goldfish pond and flowerbed and adjoining this is a half acre paddock area where we grow our vegetables. We have three greenhouses at the top of the paddock. The oldest one was put there about 60 to 70 years ago and houses a productive vine and loganberry bush. The other two are modern aluminium ones in which we grow strawberries, herbs and tomatoes plus anything else we can find room for. When we first came to Norton Mede we planted windbreaks across the paddock so that there are many sheltered areas both for the plants and for sitting to enjoy the sunshine, or to have a BBQ.
