Crab ap­ple Malus x ro­busta ‘Red Sentinel’ pro­vides colour for one of the many gar­den sculp­tures made from con­crete and re­con­sti­tuted stone, which has aged beau­ti­fully. The bar­ley twist chim­ney of the view­ing pavil­ion was added by Ethel Labouchere. Be­hind it the skele­tal forms of trees make for a dra­matic win­ter set­ting. In sum­mer, Wis­te­ria sinen­sis helps to soften the grey wall of the walled gar­den; in win­ter its gnarled branches add to the charm of the win­ter gar­den. Stems and seed­heads, in­clud­ing those of Hydrangea macro­phylla ‘Aye­sha’, are left stand­ing over win­ter. Fac­ing page In win­ter there are few plants vis­i­ble apart from the topi­ary, but the bor­ders con­tain bur­gundy from frosted berge­nia leaves and the vi­brant lime green of eu­phor­bias.
