The garden was started from scratch and established over a number of years on an easily flooded meadow around an old farmhouse which is typical of the region. We no longer use any chemicals and haven’t done for several years apart from slug pellets. We prefer other methods, such as encouraging biodiversity, by attracting birds, hover flies and Green Lace-wings.
