Welcome to summer in our inspiring garden; one of the finest in Britain.
Open daily 10.30am – 5pm, children free July & August
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.
The summer garden is a riot of colour
Bring sunglasses! The summer garden has never looked better. Wander through head-high colour, swooshing grasses through your fingers as you go. Watch the bees bumbling around the Berkheya and be dazzled by poppies and repeated colour patterns in our clever planting.
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.
