Kitchen Gardens.

The most famous kitchen garden is probably at Le Manoir Aux Quat Saisons.

Another is Rosemary Verey’s pottage at Barnsley  House.

The Pig at Brockenhurst has a very good kitchen garden.

The design itself is simple.

A pretty gate and decorative fence forms the basic outline.

A long aisle links the front and back gate.

On either side raised beds are divided by paths.

Steps mark the changes in levels.

Rustic metal has been used as supports for the fruit trees.

The planting has both colour and structural interest.

In one corner there is sweet corn. In another there is purple kale.

The large variety of vegetables and herbs are clearly labelled .

Neatness and well cared for plants abound.

This is a good way  of supplying guests with fresh vegetables grown on site.

This expression of an interest in healthy living and gardening is a welcome innovation by an adventurous hotel.
