Sheila Batterbury's Garden
February 16, 2012

This is a beautiful garden in Bath bursting with colour in the summer and full of interest at other times of the year. The garden was created when we moved west from South East London some years ago. Many of the plants were brought from my suburban garden in London. It's now well established and has matured. It seems to give pleasure to all who come here. In fact it has been described as a peaceful oasis in a busy stressful world.
Paths wind their way up gentle slopes through the flower borders, shrubberies and alpine beds. Over the years I have become quite a plant collector so the garden contains many interesting and unusual plants. Many plants may be available to buy as cuttings or seeds at an appropriate time of year.

At the top of the garden there are wonderful views across the valley to the countryside beyond. Behind the garden, almost as a backdrop, are the National Trust woods. They are full of wild life. If you are lucky you may just catch sight of Roe deer, badgers, or the rabbits that come out to play. The garden welcomes visitors by appointment.
