The herbaceous border is backed by a copper beach hedge – a departure from the more traditional backdrops – but one that give tremendous texture to the constantly changing display of colours throughout the growing season.
Each plant is carefully chosen and placed to create a harmonious and balanced display that evolves throughout the growing season. Each plant is a star in its own right, yet together they create a stunning tapestry that is greater than the sum of its parts.
An 1811 sundial by Adie of Edinburgh lies as a centrepiece to a sightline to the ornamental fountain to the South and one of the earliest James Parker sculptures to the north. (a more recent work ‘Sphere’ is placed at the Courtyard entrance).
