We had the most special visit to the National Trust Gardens at Hidcote a few weeks ago.
I won’t write much but just wanted to share the pictures with you, that’s if you haven’t already seen them on my CotswoldCreate Facebook page...
The garden at Hidcote is divided into a series of ‘outdoor rooms’, each with its own character. The further away from the house you get the softer and less formal the garden becomes.
Created by American Lawrence Johnston, he went to endless trouble and expense to find unusual varieties that would bring colour, scent, shape and texture to the garden.
He travelled a lot, visiting faraway places like the Alps, South Africa and China. He also exchanged plants with gardeners in far-flung countries from Australia to Japan. He carefully selected only the finest varieties to bring back to Hidcote.
Hidcote is a very special place for me and I am going to join the National Trust in the New Year just so I can visit and visit over and over. I highly recommend you come to the Cotswolds and see this little gem, hidden away between Chipping Campden, Mickleton and Broadway and with so much to offer. Thank you Lawrence for making it so very beautiful.
Thanks for reading
