Several gardens in Burnham on Crouch are open to the public at regular intervals as part of the National Gardens Scheme(NGS).
Mangapp Chase, Burnham on Crouch CM0 8QQ
Hedges, divide and add structure to this 1.5 acre country garden.
Spring brings blossom into the orchard, wild flowers and drifts of bulbs, later there's summer abundance in the kitchen garden and wide densely planted borders.
September's stronger colours and nectar rich varieties encourage foraging bees and clouds of butterflies.
This garden is a personal favourite!
