Edward Jenner landscaped and planted The Chantry gardens according to his horticultural interests and tastes. Since his death the gardens have lost much of their original character. Preliminary work by Dr Arthur Hollman (Designer of the Chelsea Physic Garden and Herb Garden of the Worshipful Guild of Barbers) and Ms Gywn C Perry (Professional Gardeners' Guild) has culminated in a restoration designed by Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall. The design is based on contemporary descriptions by Jenner's friends and biographers.
