The original garden at The Bojem consisted of an old fruit meadow enclosed with hedging and surrounded by fields. Annie Meuwissen has transformed the garden. In the spring and summer there are surprising colour combinations with many perennials, roses and clematis that are pleasing to the eye. In winter the shapes of the trees and shrubs provide continued interest. The entrance to the garden leads through the gate in the enclosed patio with pond area, this was once the child sandpit and place for swings. Then comes the first formal area, the geometric rose garden and long colourful borders reaching to the open horizon. There is a large Hosta collection along a woodland path. The clever landscaping contributes heavily to the beauty of this garden.
