Garden of the Month,  April 2001

Hampton Court Palace 


Hampton Court Palace and Gardens are located in the southern part of greater London, England. Dating to the time of Henry VIII, it is one of the great palace gardens of England, very extensive both in the palace and in the gardens. Beside the photos below (taken July 2000) there is an old grape vine inside a glasshouse still harvested, and perhaps the oldest in the world; a laburnum arch in early summer; the oldest hedge maze in Britain (1691); great fountain and bedding gardens; a newly restored Baroque-style privy garden; and the site of the great flower show each July (see future gardens of month here for some pictures of the latter).

In a hurry or want an overview of some of these?  Then check out the Slide Show.
