The Gardens at Agecroft
A Landmark of History, Framed in Beauty
| The sunken garden, based on the pond garden at England's Hampton Court Palace.|
Designed by noted landscape architect Charles Gillette, Agecroft's grounds reflect the order and opulence of English gardens. Here, a fragrance garden blooms with Elizabethan aromatics. The sunken garden explodes with annuals.
A walk through these gardens feels much like a stroll back in time, with elaborately clipped herbs of the knot garden, a collection of exotic plants once recorded byJohn Tradescant the Younger, and a living exhibit of medicinal, flavoring and aromatic plants.
