Gardens at the Salutation, Sandwich, Kent. The Salutation was built by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1911-1912 for William, Gaspard and Henry Farrer as a weekend retreat to enable them to enjoy the east coast air. It is a well known fact that Miss Gertrude Jekyll and Sir Edwyn Lutyens worked together on a significant number of projects. Lutyens would design and build the house, Jekyll would provide the design and planting for the gardens. The Salutation, however is believed to differ slightly from this arrangement, in so much that the gardens were designed by Lutyens and the planting plans were set by Jekyll, although there is no proof of Jekyll’s involvement in the planting.
