Description of Garden

Each part of the garden is planted with different plants and shrubs, many of them unusual. The south- and east-facing borders have the slightly tender plants. The pergolas are mainly covered with roses, vines, clematis and honeysuckle, and the knot gardens are full of architectural box. The borders round the walls have a mixture of small trees and shrubs underplanted mostly by hellebores, hostas, digitalis, meconopsis and geraniums. The rose garden is planted with the old fashioned roses among them Bourbons, moss Roses, Damasks, Albus and Chinensis: and in the borders under the old Elizabethan wall are various agapanthus and some tender shrubs, with the roses.

History Of Garden

Felley Priory was founded in 1156 and dissolved by Henry VIII in 1536. Later that century a new smaller house was built, which was added to in 1886. The garden was designed by Mrs. Chaworth-Musters, starting in 1976, when the hedges were planted and the herbaceous borders begun.
