Synopsis
The garden at Horkesley Hall, a classical house built in the 1820's, comes to life in the Autumn when the fine collection of specimen trees guarantee a flaming show of colour. Polly and Johnny Eddis took the house and garden over from Johnny's parents who planted many additions to the impressive collection, including many Acers, Eucalyptus, Prunus and Malus. Adding yet more leaf, berry and bark interest are Cercis canadadenis 'Forest Pansy', Cotinus 'Grace', Acer griseum and banks of Rosa rugosa. The star turn though must be the towering Ginkgo biloba, in all its buttery yellow autumn glory and estimated to be the largest outside of Kew Gardens. Polly's kitchen garden with her broods of pedigree hens scratching around sports yet more colour in the shape of climbing gourds and ornamental cucumbers, the bright berries of Asparagus left to seed and vibrant Parthenocissus tumbling over the wall. This fine old family family garden set in eight acres of woodland opens for the NGS and draws admiring visitors from far and wide.
