East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden

Old Vicarage, East Ruston

Alan Gray and Graham Robeson designed this lovely garden at East Ruston Old Vicarage without any assistance.

Despite the exposed position of the Old Vicarage Garden in Norfolk, the garden benefits from the proximity of the North Sea which ameliorates the cold northerly and easterly winds and periods of frost are shorter and less severe than those experienced inland. The soil is a good quality light loam and free-draining. This, combined with the low rainfall and milder winters than gardens further inland, enables them to grow a much wider range of half-hardy plants, giving the garden its exotic atmosphere.
This garden is one of our must visit gardens!
