Visit: The Laskett Gardens, Much Birch with talk by Sir Roy Strong (Herefordshire)

| The Laskett Gardens

Rosemary Verey considered this labour of love on the part of Sir Roy Strong and his late wife, the designer Dr Julia Trevelyan Oman, the largest private formal gardens to be created in England since 1945. They transformed a 4-acre field into a series of stunning garden rooms, vistas, ascents and descents. Topiary and hedging link the individual enclosed areas and statuary and ornaments are widely used – each commemorating some event in the lives of these two highly artistic people.
