East Ruston Old Vicarage

View the days out leaflet for East Ruston Old Vicarage

This is one of the most remarkable and enjoyable gardens made in recent years. Created by Alan Gray and Graham Robeson, now 21 years old and expanding at a rate of knots, it is a feast of formal design, and decorative exuberance and brilliant planting.

It is quite close to the sea and well protected from the full blast of the wind by dense wind breaks, making it possible to grow remarkably tender plants. Clustering about the Arts and Crafts Vicarage, walled and hedged compartments vary strongly in mood from cool formality to explosions of colour and form. Much of this is inwardlooking but occasional exhilarating vistas borrow distant Church towers as eye-catchers.

Sculptures, lavishly planted pots and finely detailed walls and gates also play their decorative part. Above all, the place is finely gardened and plants appear to be bursting with rude health.

If you feel stuck in a horticultural groove and that nothing new is possible in gardening, a visit to the Old Vicarage will be an intoxicating pick-me-up.
