This is a National Trust garden in Staffordshire, I hope to visit again in 2014 and add to this small selection of images.
A delightful Victorian garden - an extraordinary survival from the 19th century.
This amazing garden was created by James Bateman for his collection of plants from around the world. A visit takes you on a global journey from Italy to the pyramids of Egypt, a Victorian version of China and a re-creation of a Himalayan glen.
The garden features collections of rhododendrons, summer bedding displays, a stunning dahlia walk in late summer and the oldest surviving golden larch in Britain, brought from China in the 1850s.
