The newly laid out beds which will become The Parterre Garden were also mulched with rice husk protecting the newly planted Buxus sempiverens suffriticosa from water and heat stress in the months ahead.
Over the next couple of weeks the Irises will be divided and sorted into the beds according to a scheme of Clives devising.
In order to the complete the hedging in The Parterre we still need approximately 600 moper Buxus plants. W will propagate these ourselves in The Shadehouse. To see more on The Shadehouse click here
