The rill, which runs right through the walled garden of this stunning outdoor space, gives the space a sense of order. In the bed at the end, an abundance of lime-green Alchemilla mollis bloom from June to September.
The conservatory is by Westbury Conservatories
Fiery-red Helenium ‘Moerheim Beauty’ makes a bold contrast to a border of lime-green Euphorbia seguieriana and purple aromatic Nepeta ‘Six Hills Giant’.
Allium giganteum gives structure to the garden borders, while Sedum ‘Purple Emperor’ and daisy-like Anthemis ‘E C Buxton’ add interest at a lower level.
The perennial Geranium ‘Rozanne’ provides ground cover from early September.
Compact Stipa tenuissima helps to link the garden with wild grasses in the meadow beyond.
Set in a chequerboard pattern, yew squares give sharp formality to the walled garden. Each corner is planted with Catalpa bignonioides ‘Aurea’.
