The Garden Guide

Hadspen Garden and Nursery

The description of the garden used to run as follows "A twentieth century Arts and Crafts garden in and around an old walled garden on a hillside. The planting is good. It is by Penelope Hobhouse, author of Colour In Your Garden, followed by Nori and Sandra Pope, who have also written a book on planting design with colour. The most intensively cared-for part of the garden is within the old walled vegetable garden of Hadspen House. Since it is on a hillside, it looks less like a vegetable garden than other examples of this genre."

But the garden which went with this description was bulldozed and a re-design process is underway. It is closed at present,
