We have many laurel bushes for instant hedges, filling gaps or just creating quick privacy.
Live Heron Cam
Live Heron Cam
Every spring we show live TV footage from the most established nest in the Avon Wildlife Trust heronry that is on our doorstep.
From egg laying in February to leaving the nest in early summer, you can watch these beautiful large birds in our Wild Life section of our 240 year old barn shop.
Access to the heronry is prohibited but, with our funding and assistance from Keith Hall and Bristol Branch tree surgeons, we provide this rare insight into one of our largest British birds nests. There are between 40-50 nests in the heronry.
This Heronry was mentioned in Rutter's Delineation of North Somerset in 1829 but then located about 1 mile away.
January 24th 2013 update ~ first herons check out the herony! Three eggs laid late February. 1st hatch March 18th. 1st clutch lost but they are having another go! Find out how they are doing....

She also assisted a crew of close to 20 film the TV ads for an exciting new watering product due to be launched early in 2013.
With iconic animation figures around every corner, it was a thrill to be involved in what is a new venture for us.
