The gardens are a series of lawned courtyards forming a set of garden ‘rooms’, and some stunning herbaceous borders. The beds and borders contain a wide variety of plants and shrubs which provide structure, colour and interest through the year. Several courts reflect a Chinese influence in the design and planting with many rare small Acers and other Asian trees. The retention of some majestic trees from the original site helps to give an atmosphere of maturity and permanence to a garden which has developed greatly over the last 30 years.
Features and Attractions
The borders contain many ornamental grasses (of all types) and naturalistic plantings combined with exotic plants such as bananas, cannas, a huge variety of salvias and late summer colour. There is also topiary galore (penguin, roadrunner, cat!). Please come and see our wonderful gardens.
