Flower Gardens at Byther Farm

The flower gardens at Byther Farm provide colour and contrasting textures. They are grown to attract and support a wide variety of pollinating insects. The following is a list of many of the flowers growing in our gardens as at May 2020. A video tour of our flower gardens can be found here

Roses

Most of our roses are grown from cuttings. It is easy to take cuttings of roses and although our success rate is only 35-40%, that still provides us plenty of new plants for the flower gardens at Byther Farm.
