The Old Vicarage in Washington, and Sandhill Farm House Garden, near Petersfield, West Sussex.
Knowing how much we all love to visit and be inspired by other people’s gardens, we have been busy in lockdown arranging some exciting private garden visits – a real treat for a summer’s day out!
The Old Vicarage in Washington is a garden of enormous variety, with its more formal front garden laid out with topiary, a wide lawn and mixed border with a contemporary water sculpture, and the rear with new and mature trees, herbaceous borders and stunning views of the Downs.
We will enjoy coffee and cake on arrival, and lunch before driving to our next garden.
