Victorian Parterre in Spring

In Spring, the walled garden at Westbrooke House is awash with thousands of tulips, arranged in colour themed beds amongst blue camassias, pink honesty and acid green euphorbia, above a sea of leafy, emerging perennials. It is a dazzling display, now only in its second year following the renovation and redesign of the original Victorian garden in 2014. Previously, the walled garden had been a grass tennis court, later dug up and replaced with some box and borders. Today, it is restored as a Victorian style flower cutting garden with beds contained in box hedging, filled with seasonal flowers.
