Doubling the border

The north side of the border, soon to be mirrored

The north side of the border, soon to be mirrored

The Garden Team are currently in the middle of an exciting project to restore the 150m long herbaceous border, that will mirror the existing one on the other side of the path.  This is how it would have been in Mrs Greville's time, before the South side was dug for vegetables during the Second World War and subsequently grassed over to reduce maintenance.  In the 1970s, the famous garden designer, Graham Stewart-Thomas, redesigned the north side using more flamboyant colours but we are now bringing Edwardian pastels back into its colour scheme.

Visit us soon to see how we are getting on.
