What style of garden is Hatchlands Park?
The parterre garden was originally designed by celebrated gardener, Gertrude Jekyll, back in 1900, and much of this design has been retained to this day. Planting includes heliotropes, marigolds, nicotiana, cosmos, salvia and foxgloves, with 250 lavender plants lining the edges of the beds. Marigolds were used by Gertrude Jekyll in the original garden, and were also used during WWI to make bandages.
