BRISTOL, UK.

Grenville Johnson welcomes you to the tour of this very special and unique small inner city garden that is located just three miles from the centre of Bristol in the UK.

One of the hundred ‘Dream Gardens of  England.’

Featured in the book: ‘Dream Gardens of England’ published by Merrell in 2010,  and in the book: ‘First Time Gardener’ by Frances Tophill.

It has also been featured  on national television, in gardening magazines, and in the press.

Romantic, Classical and Italianate complete with its own flights of fancy.

A romantic gothic cloister folly ruin has been designed and built during 2016 by the award winning garden folly specialists Redwood Stone.- www.redwoodstone.com

The garden has been featured on television  in ‘The Great British Garden Revival’  on B.B.C 2  and also on BBC ‘Gardeners World.’

In 2015 the garden was selected by Alan Titchmarsh as one of his 30 ‘Best British Back Gardens’ and featured on ITV.

Also in 2015 the garden was filmed by the BBC, and was featured  by the BBC in the RHS  ‘Grey to Green’ campaign to improve our city streets and house front gardens at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

Other magical and captivating elements include a Victorian style ‘Stumpery’ and Fernery, classical statuary, a gilded gate, urns brimming with foliage and colour coordinated planting themes, a grotto with water tumbling down into a giant clam shell and cascading to the wildlife pond below.

Grenville passionately believes that gardens irrespective of their size and location have the capability to raise the spirits and feed the imagination and soul.

So many inner city gardens over the last few decades have been lost or neglected, or turned into parking spaces to accommodate the growing needs of off street parking.

With creative thought and imagination Grenville believes that this trend can be halted, and inner city gardens can once again be turned into havens for wildlife and provide places to relax and improve our well being.
