Buckland Nurseries and Plant Centre at Powderham Castle is now designing planting schemes for our clients.
Kerry Jackson and Toby Buckland discuss
Garden design and planting plans Devon
“Creating a planting scheme is the closest thing going to painting with flowers and foliage and the effects are limitless,” says Toby. “Unlike bricks and mortar, plants are dynamic and have to be chosen to thrive without dominating and crucially to look colourful right through the year.”
“We opened our nursery at Powderham Castle in 2011 growing roses, grasses and perennials – chosen for their ability to flower over a long period, their garden worthiness and suitability for the West Country climate. Plants that not only look good but have a function is also key to the selection process, whether it’s fragrance, wildlife-friendliness or the ability to survive where little else will.”
“I’m really excited about working with Kerry. His landscaping skills are second-to-none and together I believe we can offer a unique service perfectly geared to deliver what clients want and create exceptional gardens that they will love”.
