Visitors to Hestercombe will have often walked along the Pergola behind Jekyll’s Great Plat, and enjoyed the sweet scents of summer lavender amongst other beautiful seasonal blooms. But tucked away just behind here is a walkway covered in a great variety of plants and flowers which may have eluded many so far.
