A seasonal look at the plants amassed in this amazing garden created by Margaret Owen in Shropshire.

There are four national collections (Camassia, Dictamnus, Nerine and Veratrum) plus many other genera. The year will start with Snowdrops, Narcissus, Fritillaria and Trilliums and then move on to summer interest with Clematis and Lilies. Colchicum and an amazing display of Nerines bring the year to a close.
