A salvaged Gothic window, part of a wall surrounding the sunken pool area built in 1998 at Hanham Court, the Bannermans’ longtime home. Terra cotta pots of tulips brighten the early spring garden while layers of cascading foliage give the illusion of a secret space. Follies like this pop up in many of the Bannermans’ garden designs, usually to theatrical effect.
Beautiful topiary collection. Cone shaped in back, shorter rounded boxwoods most likely, and tall topiaries in front. Flanked by a hedge and centered with a stone urn/column. Wonderful!
Hanham Court, photo by iandjbannerman - The formal gardens have luscious borders of old roses, tree peonies and lilies. An amazing woodland garden with a running stream, pool, snowdrops, magnolias, ferns and the iconic Bannerman stumpery. Beyond the walls lies a downland of wild flower meadows overlooking the River Avon, and an orchard. To the West of the garden is a working vegetable and kitchen garden.
