Mandalay was built and the garden first estabished in 1955, since when it has had three owners. We arrived some eight years ago, and have in this time endeavoured to expand the range of planting as well as increase the area of borders and beds in the main garden.
This was combined with tree planting, and a circular arched walkway formed from hybrid willows, in the adjoining parkland area.
We have also introduced new shrubs and beech hedges to enclose areas within the main garden for future planting.
The vegetable garden has also proved to be a challenge but we are virtually self sufficient through the main part of the year, also supplying fruit from the fruit cage and tomatoes, cucumbers and aubergines from the greenhouse to family and friends.
The seasonal photos have been taken at random times over this period, although most are relevant to the last three years. The raised beds vary from year to year, and are usually planted with annuals during the summer, and then tulips, daffodils and wallflowers for the springtime.
We are a long established small, friendly and above all reliable practice who’s work covers most areas including, domestic extensions, alterations, and loft conversions, We also specialise in custom designed one-off homes, as well as small scale housing projects and barn conversions.

The first known show of the Georgeham and Croyde Flower and Vegetable Society was in 1938 some 77 years ago, but because of a break during the war years, it celebrated its 70th Annual show in 2015.
The Society is more commonly referred to as either the "Croyde Garden Club" or the "Georgeham Garden Club", depending on your location.
The show is held every July and includes sections for flowers, potted plants, floral displays, fruit, vegetables, cooking skills and a photography section etc all as detailed in the show schedule.
The Society, which is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society, is organised and run by a small committee of local people, who are nominated by and voted in by the societies members at the annual general meeting, which is normally held towards the end of each year.
Membership of the Society is available on a yearly basis for a small fee.
Events are organised throughout the year, and range from trips to local gardens, nurseries and places of horticultural interest to meetings in either of the local village halls, when speakers and guests are invited to give help and advice on a wide range of garden topics.
There is also an annual free visit to Rosemoor as part of the Societies affiliation to the RHS.
