mention of a garden in Devon was in the 1400`s - the Earl of Devon
had an apple garden at Tiverton Castle. Replanting and landscaping
work has been carried out over the last few years and the beautiful
walled gardens enhance the romantic ruins of the Castle. The garden
covers some three acres, and is mainly level, but with paths and steps leading
down to the River Exe.
There are: a
Spring bulb border with colourful and unusual bulbs; the
pergola planted with some rampant and some scented climbers; a
brightly coloured summer border round the house with some rare and
unusual shrubs and bedding plants; the working kitchen garden;
the orchard now has old varieties of fruit trees. In the
woodland down by the River mature trees can be seen.
