The Manor garden

Hemingford Grey, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, PE28 9BN

The Manor: The moated Norman manor, c 1130, was the home of Lucy M Boston from 1939 and the setting for her Green Knowe children´s books. Lucy gradually laid out the garden over several years, bordering the path from the river to the house with topiary yew bushes in the form of crowns and orbs for the Queen´s Coronation. She later created topiary chess pieces which stand in black and white squares. She continued to make more and more space to house old-fashioned roses, bearded irises and scented perennials. To begin with Graham Stuart Thomas advised her on the choice of roses and irises.

The Manor also has a Historic House:
