PLUS Open Garden – Broughton Hall – 9 and 10 April 2016
The Garden at Broughton Hall is in 2015, 19 years old. It started in 1996 from a cow paddock like all country gardens it has taken many years to develop to the stage it is now at. Initially a forest of some 300 Betula Pendula and Betula Nigra were planted in a 2 acre area of lawn at the front of the home, the gravel driveway winds elegantly through this dense forest that now completely blocks the view of Broughton Hall from the visitor until you reach the open area directly in front of the home. This simple planting is in direct contrast to the scene that greets the visitor when you walk around to the north side of the home. With a backdrop of the Tarago Reservoir, a terraced garden of 4 acres cascades down the slope towards the water. There is a central wide pathway punctuated by many steps leading down through the garden, but each level can be accessed without using this pathway and the many steps. Heavily planted with an amazing variety of plants which fill the banks with dramatic foliage, the formal rose beds with mass plantings of well over 1000 roses and the many areas to be discovered within the garden as the visitor wanders make this garden a delight to visit at any time of the year. Opening times are set each year to give the visitor a chance to see the garden at its best.
