HenFeathers & friends just revisited the fabulous Hortulus Farms, and Renny Reynolds gave Beth Featherman, and friend Caroline a special tour of the Library! We had visited Hortulus Farms one year ago in the fall and just had to see it in the summer time with its spectacular flower allees, herb gardens, and water features, beautiful! These wonderful 100 acre gardens were restored in 1980 under renowned garden designer Renny Reynolds and noted garden author Jack Staub. Hortulus Farms, Bucks county, Pa. is a landmark historic property with an 18th century Isaiah Warner house, barns, rolling pastures and fabulous gardens. The extraordinary gardens they created, are a mixture of English country gardens, with a sense of historic American farm architecture. Striking long allees and winding woodland paths, passing over small bridges throughout and a large pond as a focal point are just a few of the features, and extraordinary flower and border gardens everywhere. 20 separate gardens surrounds the main 18th century home and barn buildings; a French garden with beautiful topiaries and a striking Eiffel tower feature at its center, a pool fountain garden, a superb herb garden, a secret mediterranean garden. Beautiful gardens blending so well from one to the next, with sculpture, water features and follies through out, Open for tours from April thru October!
