"Sissinghurst's garden was created in the 1930s by Vita Sackville-West, poet
and gardening writer, and her husband
, author and diplomat. Sackville-West was a
writer on the fringes of the Bloomsbury Group
who found her greatest popularity in the weekly columns she
contributed as gardening correspondent of
, which incidentally – for she never touted
it – made her own garden famous. Sissinghurst's garden
is one of the best-loved in the
whole of the United Kingdom
, drawing visitors from all over the world. The garden itself is
designed as a series of "rooms", each with a different character of colour
and/or theme, divided by high clipped hedges and pink brick walls."
