Restoring the floral beauty at Haddon Hall

The Hall and gardens are now open and the borders are really beginning to fill out. Lush green growth belies the promise of a new season. We’ve been stocking up our team, as well as our borders, with the introduction of Joe, who we are delighted to welcome as a new gardener. He comes from both a horticultural and wildlife background, which will add a new dimension to our team.
