Trentham Gardens – Part 2 – Italian Garden by Tom Stuart-Smith

A perfect example of old meets new, formal meets informal. Working from an existing traditional Italianate structure, from the 1800’s and filled with modern, naturalistic palette of plants. In 2004 it was planted with 80,000 perennial plants in 70 different flower beds. The box hedging, and topiary combined with many grasses, and architectural perennial plants provide year round interest.
