Great Comp Garden

As a low sun slips beneath the leafy canopy, it chases away the early morning mist shrouding Great Comp Garden to reveal stately trees arrayed in their autumn finery, dew-kissed flowers and gossamer webs.

Synopsis
Hush prevails, ruffled only by birdsong and falling leaves. ‘This garden has such an amazing ambience,’ says William Dyson, curator of the garden since 1993. It derives in part from a peaceful setting in rolling Kent countryside, but the design is something very special too. ‘The garden is divided into areas that are markedly different in character — I love to see the looks on visitors’ faces as they emerge from under the giant sequoia, and look deep into the garden,’ he explains. Come autumn, and colour adds further wonder, not only as countless leaves turn russet, red and gold, but also from the scintillating dahlias, salvias and ornamental grasses that crop up throughout the seven-acre garden.
