Ardleigh Gardens
Two lovely, large country gardens set in the beautiful setting of nearby Constable country of north east Essex. Refreshments, and parking in paddock at Mayfield Farm. Mayfield Farm a 3 acre garden which 3 years ago was largely a field with a huge glass house on 46 tonnes of concrete footings. Now planted with long borders, a secret garden and yew hedging for topiary. In autumn '16, 31,000 bulbs were planted and an additional 41,000 last year. Charity Farm is a 4½ acre garden created from an open and empty site since 2001. Woodland walks and 2 avenues of trees create vistas. A large lake surrounded with natural planting and contains lots of pool frogs which sing loudly in early summer. Parts of the garden are delineated with beech and yew hedging, and the latest planting is a birch grove containing 12 different kinds of birch trees.
