The garden of Marilyn and Barrie Knight, who are members of the British Clematis Society.
We visited them on June 3rd 2009 during one of their open days. There was good colour in the garden and the promise of lots more to come.
Roses, Clematis and Oriental poppies were showing well and many herbaceous plants, some of which are unusual.
There are nice views from the garden, with seats to enjoy the peaceful surroundings, the owners are friendly too. Well worth visiting.

Landsbrook Farm, Landford Wood, West Wellow.          Unfortunately this garden no longer opens for the National Garden Scheme

A one acre garden with trees, shrubs, roses, herbaceous borders and lots of Clematis.
When we visited in early July we were really pleased to see so many Clematis in flower, and they were happy Clematis, because each plant had an abundance of flowers.
