Planting Patterns #14

Amish Quilt gardens

Old School Gardener


Plant Heritage

Our garden visits on Saturday were to two contrasting gardens – one private and one very public.  Gill will be telling you about Bressingham Gardens in another post – this one will give you a glimpse into the garden of Janet Sleep, chair and Collections Coordinator of the Norfolk group.

On our way we were told that this garden is remote, even by Norfolk standards, but well worth the trip.  Janet welcomed us to The Harralds and provided a map warning us that it is possible to get lost in this garden.  Although the header on this post spells the name differently, this was picked up at an antique shop and the house records, which go back to 1850, use the more unusual spelling of the name.

We could be in a Mediterranean courtyard here.
