Hortulus Farms Revisited
HenFeathers & friends revisited the extraordinary Hortulus Farm, a U.S. Registry of Historic Places listed home! And Renny Reynolds gave Beth Featherman, and friend Caroline a special tour of the Library! We had visited Hortulus Farms in the fall and had to see it in the summer time with its spectacular flower allée, herb gardens, and water features, beautiful! These wonderful 100 acre gardens were created under renowned garden designer Renny Reynolds and noted garden author Jack Staub. Hortulus Farms, in Bucks county, PA, is a landmark historic property with an 18th century Isaiah Warner Farmstead house, and barns with rolling pastures and incredible gardens. The extraordinary gardens they created, are a mixture of English country gardens, with a sense of historic American farm architecture. Striking long allées and winding woodland paths, passing over small bridges throughout and a large pond as a focal point are just a few of the features, and extraordinary flower and border gardens everywhere. 20 separate gardens surrounds the main 18th century home and barn buildings including a French garden with beautiful topiaries and a striking Eiffel Tower feature at its center, a pool fountain garden, a superb herb garden, and a secret mediterranean garden. These beautiful gardens blend exquisitely from one to the next, with sculpture, water features and follies through out.
Hortulus Farms is protected by The Hortulus Farm Foundation was started in 2008, as "a 501(c)(3) non-profit community with a mission to inspire, educate and delight". Enjoy the beauty and inspiration in a few photos here!
Hortulus has also been creating a Children's Play Garden, which is set to open by the end of 2023 but we are waiting on an update to see if this will happen by the end of the year. Check the Hortulus Children's Play Garden Page for updates.
