Barnsley House


Mature 4 1/2 acre garden, designed by Rosemary Verey. Bulbs, mixed borders, knot of herb garden, laburnum walk, decorative pottage garden. The garden furniture is by Charles Verey. Fountain and statues by Simon Verity. Two 18th century summer houses. The garden is packed with ideas for planting and design from which any gardener can draw inspiration.

The home of Rosemary Verey…it was interesting to see how her garden compared with that of Christopher Lloyds garden…and there really is no comparison. We all really loved it, even if we did have rain! She had little areas filled with all kinds of plants and I found myself getting caught up with the height too…for even the trees were full of flower. Her garden is something to behold…a pottage garden full to the brim…it was the neatest and most colourful I had ever seen…and can you see the scarecrow!

The last picture is of Rosemary Verey, who was very kind to let me take this of her.
