Rose and Sundial Garden

Sundial Garden: photograph by Marianne MajerusA Machiavellian garden indeed.  These twin borders in high summer are bursting with many varieties of paniculata phlox, delphiniums, hollyhocks and early dahlias.  By September the transformation is complete and we have massed ranks of asters of all shapes and sizes which glow in the weakening light until the end of October.

Two Arts and Crafts oak gates designed by Lesley Jenkins and made by Chris Mather and Chuck Venables lead back into the extended Lanhydrock Garden.
