Hanham Court, Hanham Abbots, Gloucestershire

There is a sense of theatre and romance, and a red-blooded passion for life, plants, history and architecture pulsing through the gardens of Julian and Isabelle Bannerman. When, on our first meeting, they produced a well-thumbed copy of 'The Startling Jungle', I knew we would hit it off!

This is the first time Hanham Court has been open for a summer season. Look out for Philadelphus maculatus 'Mexican Jewel', which must have the richest scent of any mock orange. www.hanhamcourt.co.uk
