The planting scheme comprises of perennials in blacks, purples, whites and blues, offset by the topiary and stone walling. The borders feature spring flowering multi stemmed amelanchier lamarkii as well as heptacoides, alliums, camaseia and ornigatholothnum. A gothic arbour supports white rambling roses and is underplanted with the beautiful origanum hotplease. Four oak raised beds were designed for seasonal planting such as black and white tulips and sweetpeas.
The front features six stunning prunus, bespoke hazel supports for climbing roses, oak cleft pale fencing, perennial planting and yew cubes designed to represent a chessboard.
This garden is in it’s second year and is very much in a process of development. We aim to enhance the planting with some unusual planting to suit the gothic theme.
