More about Ghassan's Farm

You are welcome to visit our garden, which we believe to be one of the best-kept private gardens in Surrey. Walled garden: designed by Russell Page in the mid 1970s with herbaceous, shrubs, old fashioned roses, procumbent roses and topiary hornbeams. Rose walk: planted with David Austin English roses beneath, and the rambler Adelaide d'Orleans. Secret Garden: a predominantly spring garden with Knaphill azaleas. Swimming pool area: bedding schemes, tubs and baskets, acer palmatum 'disectum'. Long walk: planted with Rambling Rector. Kitchen garden: recently being redesigned, surrounded by large greenhouses with tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, peaches, apricots, grapes, house plants, cut flowers, vegetables and soft fruit. Tudor Orchard Garden: an intimate area where one can relax. Parterre: box hedging, topiary, yews and large bedding schemes. Baskets, tubs and formal bedding schemes adorn the garden which is set within the heart of the Surrey countryside and has numerous specimen trees within a lake setting
