Apple Court is a beautiful, ornamental garden created more than 30 years ago, in the abandoned, walled kitchen garden of Yeatton House, by renowned horticulturists, Diana Grenfell and Roger Grounds. The formal garden extends to just over one acre and has been described by many as a “plant lovers paradise”, packed with unusual and mature flowers, shrubs and trees from around the world.
The garden has been designed as a series of rooms and passages, each with it’s own specific planting. The Hosta Walk springs into life in April and is followed by roses throughout the garden and the daylily collection, which holds centre stage until the grasses take over through August and into winter. Perhaps the most striking room of the garden is the White Garden, featured in Grenfell and Grounds’ book of the same name; a stunning ellipse of pleached hornbeam, and circular lawn provide the back drop for the variety of plants, all of which flower white at different times of the year. We also have an authentic Japanese Garden, where you leave the modern world behind and step into an oasis of koi carp, Japanese maples and bamboo.
The Garden also features exotic, sub-Tropical borders, Grass borders, a Fern Walk, Woodland borders, many day lilies, and other unusual plants.
