About the garden

Owned by
Captain & Mrs David Hart Dyke

Hambledon House sits in a frost pocket on thin chalky soil, but Mrs Hart Dyke has created a garden which is thick with colour all through the year. She is a great plantswoman, but it is the placing of plants that interests her most. Brick and flint walls, and wonderful hedges of yew and box divide the garden into smaller areas; it is especially interesting for its unusual trees and shrubs. Colour, shape and form determine where plants look best: highlights include clematis, salvias, lavender, hardy geraniums, grasses and a great choice of herbaceous plants.
