The Garden House - September 3rd, 2019 9:00 am

JP Pick up: 9:10am
Buckland Monochorum, Yelverton, Devon
Described by Toby Buckland as ‘a plantsman’s paradise’ the 10 acre garden includes varied planting styles including the Summer Garden, which is planted in a new naturalistic style. Sweeping banks of grasses and plants that ebb and flow as if they happened by accident are planned, divided, maintained and ruthlessly managed. It is a blend of shoulder high grasses and perennials that tempt every visitor to ‘swoosh’ through them.
