Garden of the Month,  November 2003

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 2002 by Ariannah Perry) 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 past gardens of month here for some pictures of the latter).
