Westwood House in Shropshire

It is 20 years since the couple bought the dilapidated seventeenth century house perched on a hilltop with panoramic views over countryside, and started creating a garden from almost nothing.

Initially, the house was very exposed, so the first task was to plant native hedges, trees and shrubs to make the garden feel anchored. Gradually the couple have created beds and borders, focusing on sheltered terraces, an enclosed courtyard, an orchard underplanted with 'Thalia' daffodils and sweeping borders to the front which, come spring, are alive with an understated colour-themed display of tulips. "A muted scheme works well in the front, although random orange tulips have appeared from nowhere this year, so we pick them for the house," adds Caroline. Alongside the tulips are peonies and alliums which, by early summer, are joined by fragrant roses. There are lots of lovely pot arrangements of tulips combined with one of different varieties of perennial wallflower.
