At the invitation of HRH The Prince of Wales, our principal honorary member, we will be visiting Highgrove House in September.
The day will start at Cadenham Manor, home of EBTS member Victoria Nye. We will see her glorious 4 acre garden which comprises a series of rooms around a listed manor house and dovecote. Divided by yew hedges and moats, the rooms are furnished with specimen trees, mixed borders, plus fountains and statues to focus the eye. Victoria is working on improving the health of the box parterres using some new techniques which we’ll hear about during the visit.
There will then be a two course lunch at the nearby Foxham Inn, after which we will have a guided tour of the gardens at Highgrove House and at the request of the Head Gardener, talk with the gardening team about the latest best practice for caring for boxwood & topiary.
