years ago this garden in Upton Grey, was nothing more than an unkempt jungle.
What we didn't realise when we bought the property was that underneath this
jungle were the foundations of a very special garden, indeed one that Gertrude
Jekyll had designed in 1908 for Charles Holme, a leading figure in the
Arts and Crafts movement.
We had very little knowledge of gardening until we came to Upton Grey; that was soon to change with the unearthing of this important piece of garden history.
"If there is some way that I could choose my eternal paradise,
this would be it. An English garden in summer filled with the soothing colour
of flowers, heady with the perfume of roses and alive with the buzzing of
insects and chattering of birds".
......Geoff Hamilton ( BBC TV...Paradise Gardens )
