England on the East End
A wildly romantic garden in the Hamptons takes its cues from the classic British film that inspired it. The mood on the pool patio is relaxed, while the selection of stone urns and pruning of the planting material is more formal. 'Leonardo Da Vinci', a shurb rose that homeowner Jack Pearson trained as a climber, outlines a wide doorway. Treating shurb types as climbers produces floral displays from top to bottom.
Howards' End, the 1933 Oscar-winning film based on E. M. Forster's classic novel of English country life in the early 20th century, opens with Vanessa Redgrave's character walking through her garden. Many who have seen the movie feel the location is its true star.
Jack Pearson, a former fashion industry executive, agreed. By the time the film's final credits rollers, he had but on thought: to live in a cottage surrounded by a resplendent garden. "That movie changed my life", says Pearson. "I was born in Memphis, Tennesse, and raised in the Midwest, but I was living in New York City then. Howard's End convinced me I needed a getaway with a garden."
