From Gertrude Jekyll and the Country House Garden. She was the gardener who popularized the informal, naturalistic look that we identify with English country gardens today.

A wonderful example of a formal focal point.

Boxwood hedges at Sissinghurst.

The White Garden at Sissinghurst Castle Gardens in Kent. The home of the late Vita Sackville-West and her late husband Harold Nicholson. Now managed by the National Trust and the most-visited garden in England.
