The Crocosmia Gardens
A national collection
I started collecting Crocosmia seriously around 10 or so years ago, although I have had Lucifer in my garden ever since I moved here in 1988.
My fascination started when I visited a local garden centre and saw some different ones as I was wandering around…….. I instantly fell in love with a couple of them and took them home.
Then I looked on the dreaded internet and found lots of lovely sites to visit……. from then on, it just snowballed and now I have around 270+ varieties!! Yes, before anyone says anything, our garden is very very full.
In the last 7 or so years of collecting, I have met some of the most amazing people that I now call my friends….. some of who are in my links page!!
Anyway, I would at this point like to thank Mr David Fenwick, for all his help and information and guidance during my time of Collecting. David was also a National Collection Holder for Crocosmia until he had to give up his collection due to ill health.
Because of him, I applied for National Collection Status too…….. Waiting for the yes or no was terrifying, but in the end was well worth all the waiting and anguish.
I got Full National Collection status in February 2007.
Visitors are welcome at any time, just give us a call to make sure we are around before you come.
