Tucked into the val­ley of the River Tor­ridge, Rose­moor has been sub­tly de­signed to fit within the pre­ex­ist­ing field pat­tern. The gar­den has a strong sense of place, with tra­di­tional tech­niques and lo­cal ma­te­ri­als used through­out. The plant­ing is rich and var­ied, with mead­ows in park­land, wood­land gar­dens, or­na­men­tal lakes and ponds, and the unique shaded gully gar­den. The For­mal Gar­den fea­tures roses, bor­ders and themed plant­ings, and a Fruit and Veg­etable Gar­den rounds off a di­verse pal­ette of plants – but then hav­ing spent 22 years as cu­ra­tor there I guess I would say that, wouldn’t I? ● From £1,035 full-board in­clud­ing en­trances to all gar­dens for an eight-day North Devon Gar­den tour, de­part­ing July 15.
