Margaret Barker, Founding Director Larnach Castle
I loved your garden. It has a soul. Your garden has a sense of place of where it is and what it is. Therefore it is unique. All a unity and a garden that is like no other and which could not be anywhere else in the whole world. Of course, it is well-groomed too.Margaret Barker, Founding Director Larnach Castle
