Review

Despite being the only garden in this book that is actually housed within someone’s private home, The Model Garden is the biggest, smallest garden that I have every had the pleasure to visit, and this is quite simply put, not just your average garden. The Model Garden is most definitely a gardeners garden and Hilary & William McKelvey, the proud owners of the Model Garden have, with quite a reasonable budget, put together something that can only be described as pure genius. A 1/4 acre garden that has something not only for all tastes, but something for all gardeners to appreciate. Part of the National Trust’s open garden scheme, this garden isn’t open every day, so it is advised to book ahead, although knowing Hilary & William, they will always accommodate if they can. Finally, I feel very fortunate to have not only seen this garden for myself, but to have spent some very limited time with Hilary & William.
