RHS Hyde Hall Garden

RHS Hyde Hall Garden, near Chelmsford

RHS Hyde Hall - a great garden created on a very difficult site.

RHS Hyde Hall near Chelmsford - a great garden creation.
In 1955 when Dr and Mrs Robinson came to Hyde Hall there were only six trees on the top of a windswept hill and no garden. If they had known then what they soon learned, it is very doubtful that the garden would have been made! 
The site was cold and windy, the top of the hill was covered in gravel and the soil on the slopes comprised a sticky clay. The  Hyde Hall site has been transformed!
