About the gardens

The gardens of approximately 10 acres lie on a stony silt soil above clay, exposed to both the prevailing south west and the cold north east winds. Open throughout the year, the gardens offer interest from early spring with Hellebores and early flowering bulbs, through spring and early summer with a multitude of Tulips, Alliums, Iris and Roses, to late summer with the peak of the Dahlias, grasses and Cannas.

A sunny winter’s day is the ideal time to see the intense stem colours of the Dogwoods and discover many other plants of interest at this time of year. The Gardens are members of the NCCPG (National Council for the Conservation of Plants and Gardens) and hold the National Collection of Hellebores and Japanese Anemones.
