Dalemain Wins HHA/Christie's Prestigious Garden of the Year Award 2013
The charming English gardens of Dalemain, nestled in the Lake District, have won the 2013 Garden of the Year Award sponsored by the Historic Houses Association and Christie’s. This prestigious national award, now in its 29th year, is designed to recognise the importance of gardens with outstanding horticultural and public appeal, either in their own right or as the setting for an historic house.
Charles Cator, Chairman Christie’s International said: “Christie‟s is delighted to sponsor the Garden of the Year Award in association with the Historic Houses Association and is thrilled that this significant award has been given to such a well-deserved winner as Dalemain. Each year the award reveals a national treasure and this year is no different”.
Richard Compton, President of the Historic Houses Association said: “I am delighted that the beautiful gardens at Dalemain have won this prestigious award. Jane Hasell-McCosh is a hands-on gardener who has followed in the steps of her mother-in-law, Sylvia McCosh, in altering and adapting the gardens and introducing new areas of planting and many rare and unusual herbaceous species. Supported by a small but expert team of gardeners, some volunteers, Jane has made the garden accessible to a wide range of visitors and especially children”
