Baxter’s Farm is the home of Judith Hann who has created the beautiful gardens over the last 20 years. These include a Herb garden, rose garden, sunken garden, box parterre, woodland area, rose pergolas, orchard, small lake and bog garden. The large rose garden contains climbers, old roses, English roses, roses growing though trees and on pergolas.
Judith will be supported by Stella, (Her Head Gardener and former WRAGS trainee) and Katharine Sowerby, her current trainee. Judith formerly worked in television, and is an authority on the growing and cooking of herbs, about which she has published a book.
The group will experience pruning roses in different structures covering many varieties. The day will include a tour of the garden.
