Just around the corner from Merriments is Pashley Manor, a private garden plonked on the border of East Sussex and Kent. It is a wonderful garden and seems to have quite ‘good bones’, as they so often say about Hidcote, but I would like to visit again earlier in the year when the planting is closer to its peak!
|The house is clad in a great myriad of greenery. Quite stunning!|
|The rose garden was looking somewhat tired but the structure is beautifully laid out|
|When I wandered through this gate…|
|I certainly did not expect to find this! Enticing to say the least but it was unfortunately too cold to take a dip. The triangle structure to the left is their plant house|
|Inside a Cobaea scandens has reached fruiting stage, and presumably seed will be harvested when the pod ripens here in the warmth|
|A delightful Passion Flower scrambling away|
