The National Garden Scheme is giving the public a chance to view two gardens – Inholmes and Rooksnest. Both are open to the public from 11-pm to 4pm situated in Berkshire. Both gardens boasted a range of shrubs to colourful flowers in two modern yet traditional gardens, offering a very aesthetic and visually pleasant experience for the public.
Inholmes – located at Woodland St. Mary, is owned by Lady Williams, the wife of a F1 driver. The garden boasts in a spacious 10 acres, offering great views of parkland, rose beds, cutting and sunken garden. The gardens combine traditional and modern features with highly individual touches like the spooky wood, brightly painted gates and benches. There are opportunities to walk to the lake and through meadow. This is a very vibrant garden with lots of flowers blooming with colour in the summer.
Rooknest – situated at Ermine Street, Lambourn Woodlands – is a fine traditional English garden approximately 10 acres in size. Rooksnest has a newly re-designed and planted pond area, herb garden, organic vegetables, and glasshouses. A very neat and green garden accompanied with specimen trees and fine shrubs. Rooksnest was mostly designed by Arabella Lennox-Boyd.
