Now that the northern hemisphere is moving toward springtime, let’s look forward to days of soft summer sunlight filtering through dappled trees and the cold feel of grass under bare feet. There is nothing quite like an English garden in summer. At Althorp formal beds are surrounded with relaxed country style planting, green fields beyond dotted with sheep.
English gardens tend to have an eclectic and layered look, born out of centuries of design, growth and need. Below are some of our favourite images of the gardens at Althorp taken last summer to inspire you as our own gardens come alive as winter draws to an end.
