These short videos are tests really, but give you a flavour of a really nice garden we visited last year called Sheepdrove near Lambourn in Berkshire. It was designed by the Herbmeister Jekka McVicar.
Some of the hard landscaping was really nice, decorative and felt like it belonged in this chalky landscape. The planting was in a cottagey, drifty style but didn’t feel edible or useful therefore wasn’t really my idea of a “real” herb garden. You may differ in your view, however the purple thyme in the gravel was spectacular.
We went on a Yellow Book National Garden Scheme open day so check out the RHS website to see if it is open again this year. I’m definitely going to go back and have another look.
