By kind permission of Mr René and Mrs Anne Olivieri (Morton Hall) and Rob and Diane Cole (Meadow Farm Garden)
These are two new gardens for us.
The garden at Morton Hall has been extensively renovated to take full advantage of panoramic views. The eight acres of gardens and parkland encircling the house were designed by landscape architect, Charles Chesshire, as a succession of distinct ‘garden rooms’. While each room has its individual character, defined by landscape, planting style and colour scheme, there is a strong sense of continuity. We will be given a guided tour by the owner or the Head Gardener. Lunch in the beautiful Orangery included.
The owner of Meadow Farm Garden, Rob Cole, will introduce the garden which is laid out as a blend of formal and informal areas. It includes a natural stream, paved and seating areas, vistas and enclosed spaces, a scree bed and wide borders of herbaceous planting. The remainder of the two-acre meadow is now managed as a wildlife reserve to encourage native flora and fauna.
Refreshments included and plants for sale.
Friends £30, guests £35
