Nancy Lancaster's vision and her work with Norah Lyndsay and Geoffrey Jellicoe. These three people shaped the garden as it looks today and the trust that now owns the house and gardens aims to continue these gardens as they would have.
Kelmarsh is a great garden that is currently in the process of being revamped. I am hopeful they will not mind me saying, but you can see that there is work in progress in the borders. It is a real challenge to revamp a garden that is open to the public and I actually quite like seeing a garden that is not completely perfect. It makes it feel more real.
I loved Kelmarsh, I remembered how much I loved it last time I visited, I berated myself for not visiting sooner and I will not wait another ten years before returning. Next year's Dahlia Festival might be a must-do visit.
