Walking Around Blickling Hall Formal Garden

The Blickling Estate is near Aylsham in Norfolk. The formal garden surrounding Blickling Hall is the result of three centuries of inspired planting. When Phillip Kerr inherited the Blickling Estate in 1930, he set about commissioning the remodeling of the formal garden. Talented garden designer, Norah Lindsay replaced the intricate Victorian layout with four large squares, and the 80 sporadic beds were reduced to a more uniform 20. The borders have cool colours to form a backdrop for brighter hues. Her planting was always carefully considered with regards to the seasons and resulted in high notes at different times of the year.
