So last week we introduced you to Claire, our new Head Gardener, just in time for our Open Garden Day. Well we thought it might be nice to get to know her a little better and get an insight to what she has in store for the Gardens. Here’s what she had to say when we caught up with her last week…
Psst… a must read for those attending the Open Garden Day, there may be some inside info on what to look out for ;)
We’d love to know how you ended up in the beautiful world of gardening, where did it all start for you?
Wow so you’ve been doing this for a while! You must have some favourites amongst the different plants and flowers?
One of Claire’s favourites, you can find this around the pond walkways.
Looks beautiful, definitely something to look out for when visiting the Gardens. What were your first impressions on your first visit to the Hall?
That’s so great to hear, the Gardens are something we are very proud of, and can only be enhanced by someone with your experience and knowledge. What are your short term and long term plans for the Gardens?
Walled Garden Pergola
Claire has filled some beds in this area, giving it a lovely pop of colour.
Ohh it’s so exciting, all sounds great and its amazing how much difference that spring prune has made to those hedges, just in time for the Open Garden Day. Are there any other highlights in the Gardens people should be looking out for?

Find these by the Pergola in the Walled Garden and take in their gorgeous scents!
It’s been so great getting to know a little more about you and the plans you have here in the Gardens. I’m sure you’ll get many more intrigued guests with their questions at the Open Garden Day. Finally, what advice would you give to those keen gardeners out there?
Thank you Claire!
Claire will be around at the Open Garden Day to show you her work and answer any of your questions.
Big thanks to Claire for sparing a few minutes for us, it was nice to get out into the Gardens 🍃🌺
