Synopsis
The Jewel in this garden is the recently restored greenhouse, with a copper frame, by Clarke and Hope c1851. There are only four or five of their greenhouses still believed to be in existence including two owned by the Queen at Frogmore Gardens and Osborne House. The garden is made up of 20 acres of parkland and 3 acres of garden. The Fenland soil is very fertile. There are some very old yew trees on the south facing lawn at the front of the Georgian house. A swing hangs from a tall pine in memory of Fi’s friend Tamsin. The vegetable garden is organic and was the first area of the garden to be developed over 20 years ago allowing Fi to grow vegetables for her three girls and fresh eggs from the chickens in the hen house. Along one side is an 18th century wall with a doorway leading to the greenhouse, circular pond and swimming pool. Other areas of the garden include a white garden and an old yew walk. Fi received design advice from Steph Birch (Rose Garden) and Rupert Golby (Yew Trees).
