All the borders, both formal and informal, and the roses are at their peak and the kitchen garden is at maximum production. A highlight is Rosehenge, an old cherry tree with surrounding oak posts over which a Rambling Rector rambling rose grows.
There are many unusual plants pushing the boundaries of what can be grown in the Norfolk climate including dregea sinensis, abeliophyllum distichum, colquhonia coccinea vestita, lespedeza thunbergii, indigofera amblyantha, weigela middendfordiana and callicarpa bodinieri. Also rosa forrestiana, rosa omiensis pteracantha and rosa complicata.
