The Old Rose Garden
This was originally a formal rose garden whose scent was cleverly held within the neatly clipped yew hedges. The presence of disease in the soil meant the roses failed and had to be removed. A ‘fallow’ period has been observed for seven years during which the soil has been replaced and treated. The area has now been grassed over as part of a three year plan that will ultimately result in new beds and planting schemes.
