Until early summer the stars of the show at Mottisfont are undoubtedly its glorious rose collection. Then the walled gardens' richly planted herbaceous borders take centre stage. You’ll discover geraniums, asters, lilies, phlox, Shasta daisies and nepata, to name just a few. Soft blues, pinks and whites are in the centre of the borders, with stronger colours at the ends - dark pinks, yellows, oranges. They draw your eye along the length of the border.
