A few weeks ago on a Sunday drenched in glorious sunshine, we set sail for Packwood House; a reasonable 45 minute journey from Hidcote. Packwood is just over the border from Gloucestershire in Warwickshire, and is probably most famous for its giant topiary. These were jolly impressive but the real splendour here is the borders and plants!
|A stark entrance gate (potential for clematis ahoy!)|
|Clothed in rose glory|
|Nigella damascena mixing amiably with Geranium (‘Patricia’?)|
|Long border spilling over the wall|
|Long border detail, excellent use of Verbascum olympicum|
