The A Growing Obsession garden was designed with the focus of recreating a Victorian lady’s flower garden.

The garden, with a romantic Victorian theme, was inspired by Jane Loudon’s ‘Instructions in Gardening for Ladies’, written in 1840, to celebrate women’s influence in gardening since the Victorian era.

Built by TKE Landscaping Ltd, and assisted in the landscaping by the gardeners at Hever Castle, ‘A Growing Obsession’ was designed to be best viewed from a terrace, with its Victorian-style flowerbeds, paths for promenading and rockeries, which were a particularly fashionable garden accessory of the time.
