Fellows' Garden, Clare College, Cambridge

A rather last minute trip to Cambridge last week offered the chance to visit The Fellows Garden at Clare college.

How UTTERLY spectacular they are, nestling just across the bridge from the Old Court of the college they stretch along the Cam. Re-designed in 1947 by Professor E.N. Willmer, a fellow of the college it shows of stunning herbaceous borders, a tropical planting, sunken garden and a secluded green and white walkway and sitting area.

Well manicured and clearly well tended the gardens are a treasure trove of unusual plants collated in interesting and striking borders.  No wonder they feature highly on gardens to visit before you die!
