A new look for the Garden Borders

Following the recent appointment of Buckfast Abbey’s new Garden Curator and Designer, Maia Hall, the borders of the Abbey Gardens have been undergoing a series of removal, renovation, and redesign work, ready for the start of a busy spring season next month.

The latest renovation work has focussed on improving our north wall border, just inside the westgate entrance, alongside the Medics border, which adjoins the medical room. We will also be undertaking a bulb survey this year, to record and archive all bulbs, so that future displays can be planned and refreshed. With a new designated role focussed on keeping the garden borders looking their very best, we anticipate some new and exciting visual displays coming into bloom, both this year and next.
