There is little doubt that the walled garden at Mottisfont that will take your breath away, not just because of the roses, but also the exuberant planting. It is divided into four sections, with a circular pool at its centre and paths fan out from the pool, which acts as a central axis. On two sides, the paths are pergola covered. But there is hardly an inch of earth to be seen anywhere by this time of year – all you can see is a veritable sea of perennials stretching before your eyes.
But at this time of year, it’s the roses that steal the show. They are so popular that the Abbey opens in the evenings during June so that you can view them!
