Vann, Surrey; a living legacy to a life-long love of gardening - Virtual Open Garden - NGS
For fifty years the garden at Vann in Surrey has delighted National Garden Scheme visitors. Its natural informality and rural setting exude the best of English country gardens, roses clamber across the roof and walls of the old house, wisteria festoons the pergola, formal planting is complemented by wild interlopers left to add colour and exuberance and a rill, lake and wooded stream garden add interest and tranquillity. It’s little wonder that film makers have adored the garden; BBCs Howards End and Disneys Christopher Robin were filmed here. Developed from a former market garden by the passion, love and commitment of Martin and Mary Caroe, our film is a tribute to them both. Mary died earlier this year from Covid-19. Head gardener, Alex White and Mary’s daughter, Emily, share the garden with us now:
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England and Wales, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.
