The English Garden Tour: Garden 10, Hay House, Warninglid, Sussex

Hay House is a lovely dutch-design looking cottage sitting on an acre of ground that is wheel-chair accessible. Here on Cuckfield Lane we are seeing a more architecturally diverse style of home. The modern use of the term, dutch design, is to indicate a broad gambrel roof with flaring eaves that extend over the long sides, resembling a barn in construction. The early houses built by settlers were often a single room, with additions added to either end (or short side) and very often a porch along both long sides. Typically, walls were made of stone and a chimney was located on one or both ends. Looking at the front of this cottage we indeed see the placement of two chimneys and the tell-tale gambrel roof. Following a sweep of lawn and a herbaceous border, with a large climbing pale, pink rose clinging to the cottage, we are invited to come look.

Following the drive around the house to a large, smooth, flat area in the back, we see it is perfect for a croquet match!

There is a room on the back, adding an extension to the house, just as predicted!

Strolling along the flower beds I spy a tall, curly, woody, pod plant. What is that?  Can one of my gardening friends tell me? It is extraordinary!

Here is the LIME and black combo we have seen in several gardens! I would love it in mine too!

Can anyone tell me what the pinky-purple star clusters are? Are they from the allum family?

The garden was surrounded by a huge,  huge, well tended hedge! Look for it in other pictures of the garden too!

Every garden had a greenhouse of some kind!

This is another unusual plant to me. I thought at first it was made of wood! Those petals did look like sculptured wood, but it was a plant! What is it?

I could certainly while-away the hours here and write to my heart’s content in that room!!

A very tropical looking palm tree got my attention too! There were several plants that I had never seen before in this garden. If you can identify them for me I would very much appreciate it! Hay House was lovely and had so much to offer! I have been so impressed with the choice of gardens here in Warniglid! See you tomorrow in the garden!
