Everything's coming up roses
To the west of the house, a former walled kitchen garden was transformed in Mrs Greville's time into a rose garden. The planting is mostly early 20th-century in style, with softly pastel coloured roses.
The pergolas support Edwardian rambling roses; the borders have shrub roses, climbing roses and box and lavender hedges.
The roses will be at their best in June, so please come up to see them then.
Latest news from the garden team...
We are currently planting out a new spring border in front of the holiday cottage and propagating over 900 plants that will be ready in the next few weeks.
Plus we have six beautiful new tree ferns at the foot of the Rockery, and hope to create an exciting 'stumpery walk' in that part of the garden. A 'stumpery walk' is made out of fallen trees, rooted trunk stumps, large pieces of bark or logs, which have been artistically arranged. Apparently the Victorians were very fond of them.
