Originally a 14th century park, Tusmore Park is steeped in history. Tusmore is a spectacular 52 acre private garden with an additional 22 acre private arboretum.
Currently parts of the garden are being redesigned by Tom Stuart-Smith and three of the six phases have been completed. Perennial are thrilled to have Head Gardener Paul Gough as our tour guide for the day.
Guests will be able to enjoy the parterres, which were designed to reflect the character and historic elements of the neo-Georgian house. Formal planting of box hedging and yew balls contain perennials and annuals for seasonal colour that cascade alongside the restored steps and terraces.
Clipped balls and pyramids of yew lead the eye along the rectangular reflection pools to the clipped beech avenue. There is a beautiful abundant border full of ceanothus, cercus, astilbes, rose-covered pyramids and bronze fennel. The sunken garden is full of herbaceous perennials that include delphinium, salvia, aquilegia, alchemilla and verbena.
After the tour, we will head to a nearby eatery for lunch.BOOK TICKETS
