Archant

The gardens of A la Ronde are now looking even better following the arrival of five bespoke terracotta pots.

The pots, from Whichford Pottery in Warwickshire, were funded by the National Trust Sidmouth, Raleigh and Exeter and District centres, and were specially designed with a diamond lattice to reflect the architecture of A la Ronde.

The pots, which stand in the courtyard to the house, will be filled with seasonal plants, and the A la Ronde garden team is extremely grateful to Kings Garden Centre for their kind donation of potting compost and to St Bridgets Nurseries and Greenfingers Garden Centre for a substantial discount on plants.
