A family garden
For a country house in Norfolk
When I first visited this large walled garden, the entire four acre site was laid down to grass. A swimming pool and tennis court at one end were separated from the rest of the garden by tumbledown larch-lap fencing. While it was important to stay true to the garden's origins as a vegetable garden, four acres of vegetables were not going to be needed by the present owners. Instead we have combined vegetables and flowers to create a magical contemporary garden that retains its strong sense of place.
Holme Hale Hall is open for the National Gardens Scheme on Sunday 10 May and Sunday 5 July 2015 (12pm - 4pm) For more information visit the NGS website here.
