Wake up to spring in 2018
Snowdrop Weekends – special news
The garden (not tea rooms) will open on January 27th and 28th. It’s an excellent year for snowdrops, we already have 42 varieties in flower and more to follow.
The garden will also be open every weekend in February, showing off the welcome sight of the glorious snowdrop collection. The tea rooms will be serving a ‘Winter Warmer’ menu.
The garden, tea rooms and plant centre will be fully open every day from March 3rd 2018.
What will you see in the garden?
It’s a gently flowing series of garden rooms and spaces, joined by meandering pathways that link diverse planting styles and landscaping surprises. Enjoy a romantic walled garden with 16th century ruins, innovative cottage-garden drift planting, flowering meadows, terraced lawns and our world-famous planted ovals. Our Jubilee Arboretum is maturing and the lake attracts more wildlife each year.
A garden for everyone
Experienced plantsmen will notice unusual plants and rare cultivars. Enthusiastic new gardeners can absorb ideas about landscaping and design, or just enjoy being in a place where around each corner views change and clever planting shines.
Whether you garden in a tiny space or have acres of land, you will find inspiration and hidden treasures to make lasting impressions when you leave us. Allow plenty of time to see the garden; it covers ten acres and will surprise you at each turn with unexpected views, fragrances and focal points that encourage you to stay a while.
The Garden House is run by a charitable trust and is a wonderful day out for all the family.
