North Garden Parterre
The Maltese Cross parterre illustrated below is planted out in box hedging and was restored by the Trust to illustrate this intricate and formal style of box hedging. The aim is to grow herbs and annuals in the raised beds in the centre of the borders.
Maltese Cross Parterre
The Garden has a good range of autumn colour. This tree Juglans nigra (Black Walnut) is in our New Orchard area (outside the Walled Garden). It was introduced to the UK in 1634 from E.N America, and is now a well established tree in our orchard, with good autumn colour.
