Geum - The National Collection

at Brickwall Cottage Garden and Nursery
Frittenden, Kent

Situated in the centre of this small unspoilt village in the heart of the Kentish Weald, and tucked away down a footpath opposite the Village School, is this little cottage-style garden. It is intensively planted with a mix of trees, shrubs, hardy perennials and approximately 100 different geums.
