    A ‘river’ of muscari in the woodland at Fairlight Hall

    A good friend, Tony Howard,  is the head gardener at an impressive private garden that has been started more or less from scratch around a large Victorian Gothic  house. This is gardening on a grand scale and I am hugely admiring of what he has achieved.  When I visited recently he showed me a curving river of muscari that he has planted winding through the trees.  It’s eye-catching now, but in a few years when they have multiplied it will be a glorious sight.  Nearby a cluster of white fritillaria grew in the long grass – the purple will always be more dramatic, but in a shady spot the white flowers are a lovely highlight.
