Imaginative topiary at Bourton House

Imaginative topiary at Bourton House

Bourton House Garden has lots of imaginative topiary in box and yew, including the parterre as illustrated.  There is also a knot garden based on an ancient Buddhist symbol with ivy arbours at each end, making a tranquil green space for reflection.  Buttresses of box interspersed with large pots of white argyranthemums face a topiary walk comprised of classic ball, spiral and cone designs.  Low ‘cloud pruned’ box floats between a lawn and an old stone wall.  Tall yew hedges bordering the White Garden are topped with ‘ogee’ arches; a shape that is echoed elsewhere in the garden in metalwork and trellis.

Bourton House Garden is open Tuesday to Friday until end of October from 10am to 5pm.
