The Long Border

The Long Border runs along the edge of the Long Pond with an edging of Ham Stone path and is mirrored on the right running along the edge of a wall. The border is broken with Yews dating back to the 19th Century. The left of the border is planted purely with herbaceous plants with a fantastic selection of dahlias, whilst on the right is a mixture of Roses, Hydrangeas, flowering shrubs, and herbaceous perennials. The three cascades falling in line from the Great Pond through the Canal and Mermaid Ponds fill the Long Pond. At the end of the Long Border where the Long Pond ends there is the Ionic Tempietto, a small circular temple. The Long Border is at its best from July onwards.
