Batcombe House

Shepton Mallet

A designer’s garden of two parts – one a riot of colour through kitchen terraces, potager leading to wildflower orchard; the other a calm contemporary amphitheatre with large herbaceous borders and interesting trees and shrubs.

    Designer Libby Russell has spent years developing this plantswoman’s garden in a beautiful Somerset valley. One part is a riot of colour with kitchen terraces and borders, a potager, pool garden leading to an orchard with wildflower banks bursting with species roses. On the other side, a grass amphitheatre echoes the striations of the hills opposite offering a calmer, more contemporary space with wide herbaceous borders edged by interesting trees and shrubs.
