Garden Portrait: Mrs Greville’s Rose Garden

Mrs Greville’s rose garden at Polesden Lacey in the Surrey Hills  is set out in a simple cross pattern, with long, box-edged, wooden pergolas, adjoining seams of ‘Munstead’ and deeper ‘Hidcote’ lavenders, walls draped in clematis and a water tower festooned in an old Chinese wisteria, it is a mass of pink and white in the summer months.

This view is towards the well-head.

    • When I wrote about the house and garden I had forgotten that I had actually visited once when the roses were in bloom! Never did catch the Iris garden though… have to be there in May I suppose.

    • Oh, yes, all of those things! Simply a ‘little’ second home 🙂 Click on the link to the full post about the house and garden if you want to see more.

  1. Beautiful! My grandmother grew roses. One bush still survives (she passed in 1980)! My uncle and aunt look over it. It’s a harder bush. It has even been frozen in the cold WV winters and came back!

    Thank you for your post and pictures!
