Barnsdale was famous for 20 years as Geoff Hamilton’s BBC Gardeners’ World garden. Within it are 39 smaller individual gardens and garden features, laid out and maintained with the same intention – to encourage people to make the most of their opportunities as garden-owners. There are gardens are of every kind, some have descriptive names like the Tranquil Garden and the Town Paradise: others are more specific like the Plantsman’s Garden, the Japanese Garden, the Rose Garden, the Stream and Bog Garden. But for many visitors the most interesting are those which match their own particular circumstances and inspire them to become better gardeners – the Cottage Garden, the Ornamental Kitchen Garden and the Allotment Garden. All are maintained to the highest standard and continue to educate, delight and inspire. The attached specialist nursery sells more than 2,000 different plants, many of them rare and unusual. Now owned and run by Geoff Hamilton’s son, Nick Hamilton, its policy is to offer the widest possible choice of good plants to its customers.
Nick came to Marden to talk to us about Barnsdale and the work of his famous father who has inspired so many of us. It was an excellent evening.
