Inspirational National Trust Gardens to Recreate at Home

LONDON, January 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The National Trust has been restoring gardens and stately homes of the UK for more than 115 years[1]. Preserving heritage and wildlife, the National Trust maintains some of the most beautiful country gardens and parks. Plant Me Now, the UK's plants online specialist, highlights three gorgeous National Trust gardens demonstrating how to recreate the style with your own outside space.

Chartwell - the home and gardens of Sir Winston Churchill

One of the UK's most renowned Prime Ministers, Winston Churchill, was an avid gardener and keen artist in his spare time. Chartwell, his home for more than sixty years[2], is a landscape of exquisite beauty. Churchill is quoted as saying, "A day away from Chartwell is a day wasted"[3]; the surroundings boast an array of kitchen and rose gardens, orchards and lakes, with jaw-dropping views of the weald of Kent. To emulate Chartwell's style, make sure your lawn is healthy in colour. A lawn aerator is perfect for encouraging healthy root growth, improving drainage and ensuring the roots take up nutrients. In addition, fuchsia is perfect for brightening most gardens. With a long flowering period, it brings a dash of colour to your flower beds. Alternatively, for those without flower beds, invest in baskets, pots and containers to liven up your outside space.

Monk's House - Leonard and Virginia Woolf's country cottage

Author Virginia Woolf's 17th-century cottage is a jewel in the Sussex countryside. Surrounded by orchards, flowers, vegetable gardens, ponds and lawns, it conjures qualities of a quintessential English country garden. Recreating your own perfect patch of tranquillity can be achieved by investing in a range of hardy perennials, tulips and dahlias, to create a stunning display of rustic beauty.        

Glendurgan Garden - subtropical garden

Glendurgan is a magical landscape of three coastal valleys nestled by woodland. From spectacular views of the Helford River to giant rhubarb plants and jungle-esque valleys, it's the perfect place to take the kids. Relax on one of the secluded beaches or go for a bracing walk through the valleys to discover nature at its finest. To copy a similar look in your garden, plant coleus chocolate mint, gaillardia arizona sun, red hot poker (Kniphofia linearifolia) to capture that sub-tropical style.
