Town Place..lessons for us all !
A stunning 3 acre garden with a growing international reputation for the quality of its design, planting and gardening. This is a garden that has gradually evolved since it was begun in 1990, starting with a hornbeam walk and hedges of yew or copper beech which enclose rooms to each side — a shrub rose garden with over 600 roses and a formal potager.
Then came a herb garden, a wayward collection of plants that contrasts well against the formal areas. topiary inspired by the sculptures of Henry Moore, ornamental grasses, an ancient hollow oak, and a unique 'ruined' Priory Church and Cloisters, in hornbeam.
This garden has it all and packs so much into its 3 acres that the overwhelming feeling is of a garden far greater than it is.Bursting with colour, whilst the use of ‘green’ through topiary and tapestry hedges, is a lesson for all us gardener’s to learn.
A must-see NGS garden.
