The Grove in Oxfordshire, England has been in the Hicks family since 1978 and is known for its architecturally-pristine gardens that David Hicks spent the last 18 years of his life designing.
David Hicks Garden at The Grove
David Hicks spent much of the last 18 years of his life creating the extraordinary garden at his Oxfordshire home. Taking inspiration from the Anglo-French gardens of the early 18th century, he laid out avenues and vistas great and small, forming an intricate sequence of green 'rooms'. It is a place of rigid formality coupled with a lush romanticism that makes it genuinely unique. Watch David Hicks showing the garden in winter to Rosemary Verey in 1993 by clicking here.
The garden at The Grove is not open to the public but occasionally we are able to arrange special visits for groups who are truly passionate about gardens and very keen to see it.
If you represent a group that would like to visit the garden, please email us with the number in your group (minimum 12 people) and your preferred date, and we will attempt to accommodate you. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
