The Garden Guide

Sutton Place Garden

A Tudor house with a great twentieth century garden, designed by Geoffrey Jellicoe for Stanley J Seeger. With his developing interest in Jung, Jellicoe saw the design as an allegory of human evolution, with creation, life and aspiration. He made a Paradise Garden, a Moss Garden, a Music Garden a Surrealist Garden and one of the finest features in any English garden: the Nicholson Wall. The Sutton Place garden has since changed hands and is being further developed. There is a new Ellipse Garden and an orchard (on the slope where Jellicoe intended a cascade).
