Creating Gardens, Guest Houses, Events and Beautiful Spaces for You to Enjoy

In the Grange we have to contend with badgers, squirrels and pigeons.  In Southern Japan it's wild boar, racoons and giant crows. My first taste of gardening was 15 years ago at Yewbarrow House and, bizarrely, I found myself at Huis Ten Bosch, near Nagasaki, in 2010 representing England in the first Gardening World Cup. I fell in love with this southern part of Japan then, and resolved, if the opportunity arose, to build a garden there. 
In 2016 we found our first perfect plot of land in Itoshima which was soon followed by our second amazing space in Nagasaki. Follow our progress as we tranform these areas into beautiful spaces for all to enjoy. Jonathan Denby
