The Manor, Hemingford Grey

The cottage garden at The Manor or Green Knowe in Hemingford Grey is filled with herbaceous plants as well as irises and hundreds of roses. The roses were chosen by the children’s author Lucy Boston with advice from the horticulturist and rosarian Graham Stuart Thomas.

Lucy Boston also created the topiary coronation and chess pieces.

Fritillaries and marsh orchids flower in the meadow near the front garden.

The Manor Garden is lived in by Diana Boston, widow of Peter.
