We recently visited the wilder edges of Tattenhall Corridor, a Jacobean manor-house in Cheshire possessed and gardened by two couples—Jannie Hollins and Bob Evered, and Jen and Nick Benefield. Today we’re going for a deeper consider the official landscapes, that are just like multiple-split whilst the wilder miles along with a much more colorful’s wealthy edges.

The imposing home, built-in 1610, needs large edges and great actions; the trunk act encounters a huge round garden flanked by bent, significant borders packed with rich planting including several British backyard favorites—hardy geraniums, flowers, phlox, bearded iris, campanulas, and poppies.

Both Jannie maintain large records on crops within the backyard record just how each develops, and what crops they’ve, where they certainly were purchased and bouquets. This is essential in a backyard that’s not just multiple-split but can also be grown to possess constantly changing tableaux.
