A Reading Room for a Rebel Girl

Show Gardens

Rebel girls have minds of their own. The way to an open mind is through reading widely. In this garden designed for a bookworm, a skull reading room forms the focal point. Only the brave will enter this dark and creepy space.

Prehistoric ferns and mosses set the tone of this space, which is shaded with the canopy of Pinus Nigra and protected with the spines of thorny holly. Poisonous Digitalis and the stems of Cornus 'Midwinter Fire' offer colour and light.
