One of the truly great English gardens, created in Arts and Crafts style by Major Lawrence Johnston as a series of outdoor "rooms", each with its own character, separated by hedges and walls. The garden is reknown for its rare trees and shrubs, herbaceous borders and unusual plants from across the globe. The outdoor "rooms" are planted with species that bloom at diferent times of the year, making Hidcote a year-round pleasure.

History

Major Johnson began his remarkable gardens at Hidcote in 1907, and continued expanding and improving the site over the course of the next 40 years. When he bought the manor at Hidcote with his mother, there was no garden at all on the site, just a few mature trees.

In some ways Johnson was influenced by French design, but for the most part his ideas were entirely original. He gathered many rare plants in Africa and China, but many more were sent to him by fellow gardening enthusiasts from around the world. In 1948 Johnson retired to France and made over the estate at Hidcote to the National Trust. Johnson died in France in 1958.

~ Italian Garden ~ o0o Hello George ... that is a shame ...the one video takes
you right up to the flowers and pops over the top of them to show the seating area, which
you can see in one of the pictures ... I love this place ... all seasons ...but especiallly to
see the wonderful red of these geraniums ... so Italian ;-) oOo
