Hersonwood is a collector’s garden, the plants were brought from around the world for many years. The result is a garden that’s filled with a wide variety of interest. The sheer amount of plants was staggering, and our guide giving us the latin names for most of them was very impressive.

I certainly wish I had recorded her tour of the garden, I will never be able to recall or find what the majority of the plants were. They were stunning nonetheless, there’s no need to know latin names or even plant names to garden or appreciate a garden. Sometimes we can feel a bit self conscious in the gardening world if we don’t know the latin names or the common names of all the plants in our gardens. Pick plants you like, compose them in a way that makes you happy, and enjoy your garden.
