  14. Sissinghurst DVD

    Sissinghurst DVD

    From £9.95

    Perhaps no garden in the country is the equal of the garden created by Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson in the 1930's.

    A masterpiece of design and plantsmanship it is maintained with verve and panache just as Vita herself would have kept it.

    From the wonderful collection of old fashioned roses and herbaceous perennials to the nut walk and the white garden, Sissinghurst is as influential as it has ever been and an inspiration at any time of year.

    In the hands of the National Trust since 1967, Sissinghurst is perhaps the Trust's most iconic garden as you will see in this DVD. From the moment the visitor walks through the gates of the castle into the courtyard it is plain that this is a garden in a league of its own. Climbing roses and trained shrubs adorn the walls and wherever you look, behind every hedge or alongside each wall, there are plants that intrigue and surprise.

    The garden is designed in such a way that it gives the impression of being larger than it is. Similarly, whilst it is not overflowing with plants, it is richly and densely planted giving the feeling of exuberance.

    It is not grand, as you will see in the DVD, it is intimate and has stood the test of time extremely well. It is one of the most beautiful gardens in the country.
