A Garden for Flowers and Wildlife

The Garden of the Old Rectory embraces the owners preferred style of free-flowing gardening where planting creates a meadow-like effect as opposed uniform blocks by encouraging the flowering plants to mingle and self-seed.

Strolling alongside Josephine Hoy whilst her garden unfolds as a series of entrancing cameos, there is no doubting that this garden means the world to her, not only because it has been four decades in the making, but also by virtue of adjoining the farm where she spent an idyllic childhood. Whilst a backbone of mature trees and shrubs provide interest in all seasons, the garden peaks in May with drifts of purple alliums, pink bistort, peonies, bearded irises, hardy geraniums, foxgloves, alchemilla, sweet cicely, euphorbias, poppies, ragged robin, nectaroscordum and centranthus. Lawn is a constant throughout, an essential foil to such an abundance of flower colour, linking different areas seamlessly and guiding both eye and foot along alluring vistas. Specimen trees and wildlife are also passions, and go hand-in-glove with nesting boxes in every available tree.
