Ascott gardens is an opulent late-Victorian extravaganza. It was largely planned by Leopold de Rothschild and planted with trees and shrubs supplied by the well known Chelsea plantsman Sir Harry Veitch. The Dutch garden, the Madeira Walk, the Venus garden and the topiary sundial, date from this period - circa 1880-1920 and include two fountains created by Thomas Waldo Story. The topiary sundial is famous, its Roman numerals are planted in box and the gnomon at the centre is made of golden yew grafted onto green Irish yew. The motto reads `Light and shade by turn, but love always´.
