In Tudor times, clothes would be draped over the weaving box to be fragranced - and the knot garden was their most prominent contribution to gardening.

Box hedges are recognised for their intricate patterns - intended to be viewed from the mount, raised walks or upper-storey windows.

The spaces between the hedges were often filled with flowers, shrubs, or herbs.

WOW . . . I have seen many box hedges over the years . . . often as celtic knots . . . but they are normally more open than this and all the same height. I have never seen one with this sort of undulation and close planting. Thank you for posting . . . now where are my gardening gloves? lol
