This unusual garden was created from rough pasture 15 years ago by Lady Karen Watson. It is a formal garden with its signature colour beeing blue. It is a garden with many aspects including unusual topiaries, tall yew pyramids, drifts of lavender and rampant roses leading to a glorious meadow with large drifts of various varieties of Rugosa rosas and an orchard of unusual hawthorns. The artist's ceramic sculptures are incorporated into the garden. The adjoining farmyard is almost complete but is still a "work in progress"!
