Hidcote Manor Garden

Posted on: December 4th, 2011 by Rob

One of England’s great gardens, Hidcote was designed and created in the Arts & Crafts style in 1907 on wards by the horticulturist Major Lawrence Johnston. It is arranged as a series of outdoor rooms, each with a different character and separated by walls and hedges of many different species.

Each ‘room’ has a unique character and colour scheme peaking at different times of year, making for an interesting visit at any time. They are separated by walls and different species of hedges, from which topiary springs. Many rare shrubs and trees, outstanding herbaceous borders, old roses and unusual plant varieties can be savoured at Hidcote, some of which were developed here.
