“Nothing at Parham is superfluous, nothing unloved. It is a house of magic.”

A Warm Welcome to Parham House & Gardens

Welcome to Parham. It has always been a well-loved family home, and only three families have lived here since its foundation stone was laid in 1577 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The Hon. Clive Pearson, my great-grandfather, bought the House and Estate in 1922. He and his wife Alicia found the House and Garden in sad repair, and together they revived and restored both with great sensitivity and care. They opened the House to visitors in 1948. Their work was continued by my great-aunt Veronica Tritton, who inherited Parham, living here until her death in 1993.

Parham’s tranquillity and timeless beauty have changed little over the centuries. Parham House and Gardens are now owned by a Charitable Trust. I have lived here with my family since 1994.

A few seasonal tasks for December:

  • Prune rambling and climbing roses. Remember newly planted roses do not need much pruning for the first 3 years or so
  • Continue to clear leaves from lawn areas and borders. Ideally shred them to help them break down more rapidly
  • Remove dead leaves from house and glasshouse plants to maximise air circulation and reduce Botrytis
  • Prune apple trees to maintain an open canopy and to encourage new replacement growth
  • Eat lots of mince pies and don’t worry about working it all off until January! Happy Christmas!
