Leaving the Vegetable and Cutting Garden we enter the Long Borders through a house fashioned from hornbeam, note the word long and not herbaceous. This is deliberate for as well as herbaceous plants we also grow shrubs, climbers and annuals here, in fact any plant that adds to the scene. Our aim here, indeed as it is throughout the garden, is to have interest for as long a season as is humanly possible.

At the northern end of these borders is a large dome-shaped structure which has various climbing roses trained over it, behind which extends a vine covered tunnel.
