South Kelding in Upton Cheyney is a young 7 acre garden set on a hillside with stunning panoramic views from its upper levels. There are herbaceous and shrub beds, prairie-style scree beds, orchard, native copses and a small arboretum grouped by continents. Beyond the arboretum lie a large wildlife pond and a boundary stream which runs through woodland featuring shade and moisture-loving plants.
Autumn colour features in the red and yellow-stemmed dogwoods, spindle copses, acers, rowans and liquidambers, with the white, pink and coppery textured bark of different birch tree species providing an attractive contrast to the changing leaf colours. Up by the house the bergenias, echinaceas and sedums in the scree beds offset the waving flowerheads and stems of Miscanthus and Stipa grasses.
Cost of the visit is £8 for Members, £10 for Guests and includes refreshments.
