A unique Rose Garden, by Jonny Norton

Created by Graham Stuart Thomas - one of the most important figures in 20th-century British horticulture - in the 1970s, the walled gardens at Mottisfont were chosen to house many varieties that may otherwise have become extinct.’  

“Few better sites could have been found for a garden of old roses than this." - Graham Stuart Thomas, An English Rose Garden (1991)

Jonny Norton, head gardener will show us the gardens, telling us about their history and how they care for the roses.
