The garden is a particular passion of ours so there is always a new project on the go at our wedding venue. Most recently we’ve been getting into Japanese ‘cloud topiary’, so-named because of the organic, rounded shapes of the bushes which resemble clouds. They go brilliantly next to the giant, sharp angled pyramids which Chaucer Barn is famous for. It’s one of the reasons why we’re members of the National Gardens Scheme. As such we open our gates to the public on a Monday each June.
