Pensthorpe Gardens near Fakenham

The Millennium Garden at Pensthorpe Natural Park is a great place to visit for ideas

The Millennium Garden at Pensthorpe Natural Park was designed by Piet Oudolf, the internationally acclaimed plantsman. His revolutionary style of naturalistic planting fits so perfectly into the landscape at Pensthorpe that it is difficult to see where the garden begins and ends. Deep borders of grasses and perennials planted in bold drifts create dramatic waves of texture and colour.
But this is not a garden of exotics, you will see familiar English herbaceous border plants used in such a way that you are prompted to look again, such is the startling effect.
The Wave Garden - Designed by Julie Toll, herself a Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winner, the Wave Garden has turned a corner of Pensthorpe into a spring and early summer garden. The creation of the garden will again blend the natural with the formal.
