Description of Garden

rn Rose lovers will relish the chance to see over 100 varieties of roses, such fragrant beauties as Fantin Latour and Konigin von Danemark. The enchanting garden, set in 5 acres, is divided into rooms, each favouring rare and specialist plants - from the hot border, white garden, traditional vegetable and woodland walk, each and every taste is catered for.

History Of Garden

Lucy Thompson, chatelaine and sometime shepherdess of Culland Hall grew up within spitting distance of Sissinghurst in Kent, planting her first White Garden at the age of twelve. Together with her husband Simon, who was born and brought up at Culland, they have spent the past 15 years redesigning and restoring the garden.
There has been a house on the site since the 12th Century but when Simon's father bought the property in the late 1930's he deemed it so ugly that he decided to demolish it and build a new south-facing Hall. Building had only just commenced when he was sent off to fight in the Second World War. Happily, he returned to find the property finished and in excellent order, despite lack of materials and labour.

The enchanting garden, set in 5 acres, is divided into rooms, each favouring rare and specialist plants within the hot border, white garden, potager, 19C walled kitchen garden and woodland walk.
Lucy hopes that those inspired by the gardens will take the opportunity to purchase rare plants from over 20 RHS Exhibitors and specialist nurseries exhibiting on the day.

Both Simon and Lucy had supported Mid-Derbyshire Mobile Physiotherapy for many years before deciding to open their private gardens for just one day a year to support this vital local charity who rely heavily on their annual donation.
