The Haddonstone Garden: A Sense of Heritage

Long Border
Joanna Brinkman and William Scholey have taken inspiration from Chatsworth’s history for their border, The Haddonstone Garden: A Sense of Heritage.
Immersed in the wildlife-friendly planting, you’ll see a bust of Capability Brown, who famously redesigned the landscape at Chatsworth in the 1700s. Next to Brown will be pineapple obelisks, reflecting head gardener Joseph Paxton’s successful pineapple-growing ventures at Chatsworth in the 1800s.
The colourful and fragrant planting in the border has been designed to encourage the gentle hum of bees and insects, providing stimulation for our eyes and ears. Key pieces of Haddonstone will be immersed within the border, adding a tactile element to the design.
