Hunting Brook Gardens is a plant-lover’s paradise. It consists of five acres of botanical herbaceous gardens and 15 acres of woodland and valleys. Jimi Blake, owner and plantsman, has collected plants and created ideas over the years from his foreign expeditions. “I spent 25 years collecting every plant I could get my hands on; the more difficult to grow the better,” says Jimi. “Now my aim is finding the very best, longest-flowering perennials and growing them in combination with the best foliage plants that are both modern and inventive.” The garden looks great from early spring until the first frost.
