  • Kifsgate Court is in a magnificent position with extensive views. The garden has many unusual plants, shrubs, tree peonies, hydrangeas and abutilons. Famous as the home of the giant ‘Kiftsgate’ roses, it also has a collection of old-fashioned roses. The story of Kiftsgate is the story of three generations of women gardeners: Heather Muir, Diany Binny and Anne Chambers. Each in her unique way has contributed throughout almost a century to making Kiftsgate the world renowned garden that visitors and gardeners alike have grown to know and love. The double rose border is filled with a mixture of old fashioned, specie and modern roses. The scent in high summer is overpowering. The path running down the middle is edged with the pink striped Rosa mundi, many of which have reverted to its parent, the Apothecary’s rose. To extend the interest throughout the year, plantings of astilbes, asters and grasses add further texture and form. At the end of the path a clipped arch of whitebeam frames a statue seat by Simon Verity. In this area ferns and grasses provide a tranquil corner.
