Asian Garden (Area N)

This damp, sheltered copse already houses a number of borderline hardy trees and shrubs from previous plantings, not all of which are of Asian origin, e.g. Umbellularia californica, Colletia armata, Pittosporum. A series of small glades with dappled shade offers excellent conditions for Camellias, Rhododendrons, Pieris and others, together with a variety of moisture-loving ferns, primulas and other herbaceous perennials. Access has been much improved by laying hoggin walkways throughout the area, to replace worn out and slippery grass/mud paths. This area has been prepared and planted by the Gardens' staff and FOBs volunteers.
