On the 1st of March we once again opened the huge oak doors to the exquisite garden at Sissinghurst. It really is fabulous, and the gardeners have worked very hard to get it ready. The dry spell with mild weather has allowed them to mow the lawns, and there are some wonderful early gems in flower to see, such as Hellebores, Snowdrops, Butchers Broom with it’s red fruits, Iris, Crocus and Primroses. It’s also the perfect time to see the architectural structure of the garden, with the hedges nice and sharp, and vistas clear and open. Here is a little taster of what you might see over the next few days.
