People sometimes think that gardens and woodland are really bare and colourless in winter. A visit to the sensory gardens at Crag House Farm, the home of Caring For Life, proves this theory to be flawed!
The colours of the bark, the stones and mosses, the beautiful snowdrops pushing through and other winter-flowering bulbs and shrubs, all produce a magical effect and bring the gardens to life.
Careful planning has gone into this, but the sensory gardens still look very natural and the pathways winding through have recently been re-mulched, to make them attractive and accessible for visitors.
The Gardens and Conservation project team are rightly proud of their work, as they see the woodland garden coming to life in the winter, and changing through the seasons.
