Welcome to Johns garden in north west England. The garden is about 40 metres long by 15 metres wide and has been terraced due to the considerable slope away from the house. Although our area is not famous for its fine weather the garden faces south and therefore obtains maximum benefit from the available sunshine. The garden has recently been converted to easy maintainence, perennial planting and alpine borders. The garden also contains a selection of "half hardy" perennials (phygelius, abutilon, pentstemon) and a large selection of hardy fuchsias.
