MOOR HATCHES West Amesbury
This garden is rarely open to visitors and we are very fortunate to have the opportunity to visit this unique garden. Featured in Gardens Illustrated September 2012,
The 4 acres have been designed by TOM-STUART-SMITH eight times gold medal winner at Chelsea and three times recipient of ďBest in Show ďat R.H.S. show Chelsea.
The garden faces south to the river Avon. Near the house, Tomís signature planting palette of atmospheric grasses and perennials fills a walled area. People think itís a naturalistic garden but it is actually quite a formal garden with its tightly orthogonal design, all rectangles within rectangles Ė rather modern and bold.
Nearer the river a series of pools and rivulets delight both humans and wild life.
The owner Mrs Juliette Leach has kindly offered to provide coffee and biscuits together with a two-course home made lunch with wine or soft drink.
CHISENBURY PRIORY East Chisenbury
In this traditional English garden, broad vision and close attention to detail have combined to produce an atmosphere of romantic controlled exuberance within an ancient and peaceful setting. The four-acre garden surrounds the Priory parts of which date back over 400 years. The garden includes two 100-foot herbaceous borders recently re-designed by TOM-STUART-SMITH; a great curving pergola designed by Paul Elliott in galvanized steel dripping with climbing roses and clematis viticella, and many mature trees and shrubs
