Gertrude Jekyll Holy Island garden shed


The Shedworking staff has recently returned from a holiday in Northumberland where we were delighted to come across this lovely potting shed in the walled garden designed by noted horticulturalist, writer and artist Gertrude Jekyll in 1911 on Lindisfarne. It was made as a companion to architect Edwin Lutyens' transformed castle on the island for Country Life magazine founder Edward Hudson. The garden was restored in 2003 to Jekyll's original design as you can see from the video below.
