‘Twas a rather British, cool summer’s day when we went to visit Hollister House Garden in Washington. Fitting, as owner, George Schoellkopf would be giving us a personal tour of his breathtaking interpretation of a classic English country garden. As George explained to us, an English garden is a garden with a formal structure and loose planting; right angles, hedges, paths, walls, and a certain exuberance to the planting.
Hollister House is owned by George Schoellkopf and Hollister House Garden Inc., a nonprofit organization.
Allow us, and George to show you around….
