The garden at Hamilton House, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands is full of very mature trees, so has had to develop as a woodland garden due to the deep shade in the garden. It frustrates, motivates and constantly inspires the gardening lives of Phil and Diana Berry, the owners. The front garden features formal topiary beside a sweeping drive and wire sculptures by Derek Kinzett. The rear garden includes many different rooms. There is a Parterre/box garden by the house, which is full of snowdrops in Spring, and David Austin roses and clematis in Summer. The Parterre leads to the West Pergola, designed by Adrian Rayment which is covered in clematis and bordered with further David Austin roses. The Folly Garden boasts an interesting collection of ferns, and includes the Oak Sculpture Blodeuwedd, carved from an existing tree in the garden. The main woodland area is planted with a variety of rhododendrons and camellias with hostas and tree ferns. There is a large pond, first established in 2000, which has a bridge over it lined with ivy. The Terrace Borders feature rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias, with a range of herbaceous perennials including delphiniums, peonies, and crambe cordifolia. The garden features many sculptures and is beautiful in all seasons. It is open for the NGS every year.
