Lemon trees in the Courtyard Garden
page created 03 August 2005
The newly re-designed courtyard garden was opened on 5th July 2005, and named 'The John Madejski Garden' to honour its benefactor.
The central feature of the rectangular garden is an oval pool, surrounded on three sides by 22 mature lemon trees. These are planted in large, cubic containers made from green glass with a translucent surface. The trees were imported from Sicily, and will be replaced by pots of clipped holly in the winter months. I wonder where the lemons are kept then! Anyone know?
