John Killingbeck has worked in Horticulture for over 40 years either in his capacity as a head gardener or a lecturer. He is qualified to M.Hort level and has a special interest in ponds and trees.
Our wildlife pond is an artificial pond, designed specifically to be as natural as possible and to encourage wildlife. Our pond dipping at the Wildlife Day has revealed that it is full of life, including newts, dragonfly larvae, Great Diving Beetles, pond snails, leeches and water boatmen. Both dragonflies and damsel flies can be seen hunting over the pond in late summer.
Our Rill Garden, designed by Lizzie Tulip, is in complete contrast to the rest of the garden and uses the gentle sound of water to add to the peace and tranquility of this ornamental garden.
