A garden full of year round interest
From spring, drifts of narcissi and fritillaria fill the meadows and bulbs, stems and hellebores add colour in the winter garden. Tulips then follow in pots and borders along with blossom in the orchard. From mid June the rose garden reaches it peak of blooms and perfume along with many companion plants including delphiniums and geraniums. The east terrace holds interest throughout the year with the herb and knot gardens and borders. From July onwards the Red Hot borders start to put on a dazzling mix of colours with dahlias,heleniums, tithonia and zinnias lasting into autumn.
