The Rose Gardens

red rosesrose3rose2Probably the oldest surviving feature of the garden original layout is the formal rose garden edged with box hedging. The circular rose garden and pergola, diagonally opposite, is much more recent. It was designed by Seigneur Beaumont in 2000 and so is known as the Millennium Rose Garden. The rose varieties in both areas have been chosen for their repeat flowering and fragrance and many bloom until late autumn.
