Rosemary Verey. 1918 – 2001
Rosemary Verey was one of Britain’s best known
gardeners, admired by English and American gardeners alike.
Without a master plan, as in her own words ‘
initially I knew very little about design’(
Rosemary Verey’s Making of a Garden ),
the garden evolved slowly over the years, combining styles from the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to create a garden in the English
classical revival style. The result is a charming eclectic mixture of
features and styles given vitality by Rosemary’s bold approach. The garden includes well known features such as the laburnum
walk, temple with its pool, the knot garden and the potager.
A tour of British gardens would not be complete without a visit to Barnsley House. With the well known features, including the kitchen garden, are classical herbaceous borders, rose hedges and the planned vistas of the beautiful English countryside beyond.
Barnsley House is the epitome of an English country garden. Click here for visitor info.
