By a side door were a pair of Fucrea parmentier which blew me away. They were HUGE and like an amazing candelabra of flower. I WANT ONE NOW!!!
The beds were densely packed and slightly reminiscent of Dixter. Full of all the plants I liked....tropical salvias, geraniums, Helianthus salicifolia
There was a hedged sunken pool with a hot gravel garden containing lots of gems and things I wasn't familiar with
Then finally at the top was a huge yew topiary garden for which it is famous.
So overall a great place to visit if you are up near Birmingham. Really interesting history, great kitchen garden, house and fabulous gardens....
