Perry's Perennial Pages

Garden of the Month,  March 2002

Great Comp 

A hidden gem of 7 acres in Sevenoaks, Kent, this garden is the result of over 40 years work by Eric Cameron.  With lawn and terrace garden, it mainly features meandering walks through borders, rhododendrons, shrubs and woods.  Vistas abound, as do the unexpected and lovely faux ruins.  Many choice and unusual plants for the plant person.
 For a quick overview, check out the Slide Show.
