A Summer’s Day at the Old Rectory

As the sun sinks behind the Old Rectory, it suffuses a myriad flowers and grasses with a golden glow so that, glimpsed from a nearby hillside, the garden appears as a jewel set within wildflower meadows and copses, hills and hollows.

Synopsis
There is nothing blank about the outstanding garden created by this husband-and-wife duo, and a bare canvas has been transformed into a vibrant tapestry of plants contained within a framework of yew or beech hedges. A strip of bearded irises flanks a rose cutting garden, whilst beyond, an allee of peonies leads past twin sunset-hued borders towards a walled kitchen garden, rose garden, and double herbaceous borders that run the length of the house. Throughout there is an abundance of roses, scrambling over arches, up obelisks and in countless joyful unions with nearby plants. ‘I’ve loved roses for years — they are a real passion, but I have far too many favourites to name any single one,’ admits Louise.
