DescriptionTHE LOSELEY WALLED GARDEN
Loseley’s two and a half acre Walled Garden is one of the hidden secrets of the South East. Based on a design by Gertrude Jekyll, the Garden is divided into five different “rooms” each with its own theme and character:
Firstly, the award-winning Rose Garden, now in its 12th year, is planted with over 1,000 old fashioned rose bushes (bourbons, gallicas, rugosas, albas, moss, damask and English), all framed by long low box hedges, with a rose covered gazebo as the central feature.
The extensive Herb Garden is planted with over 200 herbs (some dating back to ancient times), and this is divided into sections for culinary, medicinal, household and ornamental.
The Fruit and Flower Garden provides bold colour throughout the season by combining the more traditional herbaceous plants with mixed shrubs and drifts of annuals and bulbs.
The White Garden, as a total contrast, is serene and tranquil with 2 water features.
And finally the spectacular new Organic Vegetable Garden specialising in companion planting, with a whole area devoted to producing special seed for the National Seed Library (HDRA).
Other features include ancient wisteria under-planted with velvety purple irises, a mulberry tree reputed to have been planted by Queen Elizabeth I, a magnificent vine walk, moat walk and tennis court border.
