Caroline Garland’s visit to Le Bois des Moutiers…Lutyens Lutyens everywhere! with a smattering of Gertrude Jekyll



In fact this should really be the other way round.  The garden is a french garden in Normandy: the house designed in 1898 by Sir Edwin Lutyens and the garden by Gertrude Jekyll, the only one like it in France.. However where the planting is absolutely pure Jekyll heaven the house is pure Lutyens hell!  The redeeming  Lutyens features however are in the garden – the benches, walling, steps and typical Lutyens covered pergola walk – they are really beautiful.  Sadly we were a little too early for the herbaceous borders but the potential is clear I think from the photographs.
