The Teddington Gardener

Postcards from Shropshire – Chapter 5 from David Austin Roses – The Lion Garden

The Lion Garden

The Lion Garden has been redesigned and the sculpture moved to create a focal point. Four long borders mingle shrub roses, including many English Roses, with herbaceous perennials, creating a wonderful contrast of colour, form, texture and scent. The borders are punctuated by magnificent standard roses, which add height and structure to the garden.

Perennials, climbers, arches, standard roses, crisp lawns and a bright blue sky. Keen viewers will notice I did step away from this garden to capture the Pergola – free from folk for a moment – but otherwise it is the Lion Garden completely.
