The original garden at RHS Garden Rosemoor was created by Lady Anne Berry, and is a true plantsman's garden. The whole of Rosemoor is surrounded by woodland, and the acidic soil and valley-bottom location proffer their own challenges, as despite a generally mild climate, the garden is subject to frosts from October through to May.
