Our Walled Garden
The Great Lawn and Double Herbaceous Border
The old wall protects the garden from a Northerly wind and gathers the sun from the South side to create a microclimate that with relatively light Goldstone series soil produces a generally early flowering garden and safe haven for more delicate plants.
The long herbaceous border is an eclectic mix of Helen’s years of gardening. Notable plants include Actinidia kolomikta which has the stunning creamy white and pink leaves in spring and early summer. The bushy lines of Ballerina roses, with their profusion of small pink flowers, provide structure and continuity from May to October.
