For this week’s Six On Saturday, I’m bringing you some pictures from my current outing to an area backyard. Beechenwood Farm, is only a handful of miles from the place I stay. Mr & Mrs M Heber-Percy redesigned the home and gardens from two burnt out farm cottages after they started this venture within the early Seventies.
The gardens cowl roughly 2 acres, there may be a lot to see, beginning with a walled herb backyard, rock backyard, orchard, mature flower beds, pretty greenhouse and raised vegetable beds, a terrace with rose and clematis pergolas and a woodland backyard. Throughout the lane it continues, with a vegetable poly tunnel, fruit cages, giant vegetation sale space and a stroll by means of the 8 acre copse which they planted in 1992.
The backyard is open each Wednesday afternoon from 2-5pm from early Spring to September. Entrance charge is £5, and you too can buy tea and muffins. The backyard is a part of the Nationwide Backyard Schemes and the homeowners have opened their gardens for nearly 40 years (the plaque above exhibiting 30 years is now virtually 10 years previous).

I acquired a bit excited with all that lay earlier than me and I gave up utilizing the telephone app to determine the whole lot that I noticed, so do assist me out with naming the primary photograph. Second photograph was of a wall lined on this fairly Honeysuckle, whereas over close to the tea space was a stunning white Hydrangea shrub (I believe!🤔)
Picture 4 was of a enjoyable terracotta plant pot sculpture. Whereas out within the woodland backyard stood this glorious monkey puzzle tree. Subsequent to the greenhouse in a sheltered spot, pots overflowed with flowers, photograph six is of 1 full of early dahlias.
Six pictures simply isn’t sufficient to point out you the whole lot, however then there wouldn’t be any surprises left for anybody who’s now impressed to go and go to for themselves.
