Hardy Plant Fair 2017

The Northamptonshire branch of the
Hardy Plant Society is holding its
Annual Plant Fair at Holdenby House on  
May Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday 11-4pm.



The Gardens

The 20 acre Grade 1 listed garden, set in stately lawns and hedges, has several special features. Away from the formal gardens lie the terraces of the original Elizabethan rose garden - one of the best-preserved examples of their kind. There is also a delightful walled kitchen garden with the original Victorian greenhouses.

The Elizabethan Garden

Elizabeth Garden

This was replanted in 1980 by Rosemary Verey, using only plants available in 1580.

The Tous Tous border

The Tous Tous border

This border was named after a pet dog belonging to Lady Clifden's daughter, which is buried in the garden. The 1980 replanting here was started by Rosemary Verey and completed by Rupert Golby as a fragrant border.

The Pond Garden

The Pond Garden

This is set amongst new yew hedges and was also redesigned by Rupert Golby.

King Charles's Walk

King Charles's Walk

The border recalls the period of Charles I's imprisonment: he was a brisk walker and Lord Pembroke (his keeper) had difficulty keeping up with him.

The Silver Border

The Silver Border

This border houses the owner's ever-growing collection of silver-leafed plants.
