Several beds in the garden, including 3 on the lower lawn, are planted twice each year with bedding plants in a modified version of Henry Trevor’s original ‘carpet bedding’. In 2007 this central ‘wheel bed’ had a central plant of Fatsia japonica, with spokes formed by Ophiopogon and triangles of pink and white begonias. A box edging surrounded the whole.
Henry Trevor’s aim was that there should be attractive views down from the walks he created around the sloping sides (see PGPT098 for plan with walks marked).
