Down House in February

This two-acre country garden has been created since the millennium, its mature woodland coming alive each winter with golden aconites and snowdrops interspersed with dainty crocuses. The lovely 'borrowed landscape' of the surrounding downland and valley has been carefully preserved whilst designing the garden, a sloping grassy plot which is now divided up into different spaces using rope swags round the rose garden, stone walls and hornbeam hedges to enclose the lawn, whilst long vistas and strong axes have been created in the potager from radiating avenues of hawthorn standards. Nearby are winter borders of coloured stems and a grove of silver birches.
