Stream garden meadow

This meadow surrounding a quaint little stream offers a contrasting garden experience to Aberglasney’s more formal areas. The Stream Garden runs into woodland leading towards the mysterious Grongar Hill which was a source of inspiration for the young John Dyer when writing his famous poems.

The meadow is not natural but has been cultivated over several years. The Trust has planted thousands of Narcissus bulbocodium “the hoop-petticoat” daffodil, which are not native to Europe and the meadow needs to be cut at precise moments in the year in order to encourage the growth of seedling bulbs.

Look out for Fritillaria meleagris lily. The Malus x atrosanguinea apple tree produces some beautiful colours in the autumn. Also in this area are Camassia and Siberian and Japanese Water Iris.
