New to our Friends’ visits programme are these two contrasting gardens. Morton Hall Garden has been extensively renovated to take full advantage of panoramic views. We will be given a guided tour either by the owner or by the Head Gardener. The eight acres of gardens and park encircling the house were designed by landscape architect Charles Chesshire as a succession of distinct ‘garden rooms’. While each of these rooms has its individual character, defined by landscape, planting style and colour scheme, there is a strong sense of continuity.
White Cottage is about 15 minutes away from Morton Hall and, before the owners begin our visit with an introductory talk at 1.30pm, you are welcome to picnic in the garden. The two-acre garden has large herbaceous and shrub borders, an island bed, a stream and bog garden. Formal areas with lily pond and rose garden. Alpine rockery and new fern area. Interesting trees. Plants for sale.
Refreshments provided at the end of the visit.
Friends £30, guests £35
