Special Garden Events in Wiltshire

Spilsbury Farm

The garden at Spilsbury Farm is an intriguing mixture of formality and wildness. An orchard next to the house leads to vistas lined with clipped blocks and pyramidal hornbeams in long meadow grass that are focused on ancient oak trees. Within this strong framework, Tania seems happy to let nature enjoy a controlled riot. The house is approached by a lovely gravel garden planted with perovskia, Euphorbia myrsinites and santolina. Box, clipped into balls, keep clouds of fennel at bay, borders billow with eryngiums, sedums, cardoons, grasses and roses mingle with meadow grasses. Pots filled with summer annuals dress the terrace and furnish steps.
