Winchester gardens

Private and public gardens in Winchester, Hampshire, UK.

As Winchester is is our main base, we are keen to encourage readers to look at and debate about good local examples of gardens, evolved or designed!

We hope that early in the New Year we will be able to add an image upload function to the blog, where we will discuss the best planting combinations, garden design solutions, accessories and exterior style, with our followers, through pictures.

The effort will be to develop an ongoing document on the residential and public green spaces of Winchester, Hampshire, and to record styles and trends towards further greening of our immediate environment.

We start with some nice gates, in the December snow; Queen Eleanor's Garden, one of very few surviving original medieval gardens, and the renowed Hilliers Arboretum...
