No garden under active cultivation is likely to achieve a final form and each year Dartington undergoes changes. Because of overcrowding, gale damage or the natural process of decay, beds, shrubs and plants must often be rooted out and new varieties introduced: in fact, so continual is the process that no written description can be exact. Remember also that this is not a garden of botanical specimens; it is one based on personal discrimination and, more importantly, one in which only those plants that seem to belong to the underlying colour, shape and texture of the landscape will be found.
