Doddington Place Gardens

Brilliant visit to Doddington Place in Kent today. Open as part of the National Garden Scheme.

Dodging the showers, we adored the mixture of planting: lush deep woodland with two-tone Summer Ragwort, beautiful herbaceous borders, a formal sunken garden, and an arid rock garden.
Highlights from the borders included lovely salvias, cardoons, box, geums and astrantia. Also a fabulous Indian pokeweed, foxgloves, and Matiliija poppies – fried egg plants.

But most spectacular of all was the wonderful array of cloud-clipped ancient yew hedges. Like a green Mount Rushmore.
