Talks (times available on the day)

Rose Pruning – Head Gardener Owen Vaughan
See how we prune the roses in our extraordinary way. It is a beautiful and very sculptural process where we bend, twist and turn rose stems back into themselves to create an intricate and beautiful work of art. This pruning method produces the abundance of flowers that we are known for.
