Days out in Essex: Renowned country garden opens as part of fund-raising scheme
A RENOWNED Plantsman’s Country Garden is opening its doors as part of the charity fund-raising National Gardens Scheme.
Saling Hall is a garden of 12 acres, internationally famous for its collections of rare trees and shrubs set in a sylvan landscape. The gardens at Saling Hall, near Stebbing, feature a Temple of Pisces, a menhir and many vistas that make a garden of moods and surprises, beauty and strong botanical interest. There are no less than six ponds within the gardens!
The house (not open) and walled flower garden are dated 1699.
Susan Copeland, NGS county organiser, said: “Everyone has their favourite part of these very special gardens and my favourite is the walled garden. It is so steeped in history and is such a calming place to wander around. In the spring, with the blossom on all the fruit trees, it is just perfect.”
