Early spring at Myddelton House Gardens

Myddelton House gardens in Enfield is a place to admire plants all year round, though spring is when the place really comes into its own. From the 130-year-old Wisteria to the glasshouses, unusual shrubs and the essence instilled by the great plantsman E. A. Bowles who lived here. Edward Augusts Bowles (1865 1954) travelled the world to bring unusual specimens back to the garden and became one of the most prominent horticulturists in Britain with over 40 cultivars named after him. Bowles experimented with flora never before seen in cultivation, wrote extensively, painted, encouraged young talent and welcomed graciously anyone who had visited his garden. I try and visit as often as I can to glance at my favourites and take inspiration. The spirit of Bowles is very much conserved here and strongly felt everywhere.
