Original parterre design replanted with tulips.
National Rowing Centre
The box hedges of the original garden design are gradually being renovated and in spring the beds are filled with jewel colours of tulips and in summer a profusion of lavender. Five of the rose beds have been replaced with herbaceous borders to give interest throughout the seasons with a profusion of flowering plants including geraniums, thalictrum, astrantia, dahlias, cannas, sedum, asters and anenomes, with verbena and fennel spreading throughout.
The most striking feature of the East Gardens is an avenue of clipped yews bounded on one side by a bulb meadow containing, in the spring, snowdrops, daffodils and fritillaries. A newly-developed spring walk takes you round the garden past many more bulbs, including the native Tulipa Sylvestris, and trees and shrubs for winter interest. Continuing back towards the house there are beds and plantings of roses, trees, shrubs, grasses and herbaceous perennials.
The Courtyard Garden was originally laid out in 1875 as a rose garden, with an elaborate box hedge parterre, possibly by Nesfield.
