The Garden

What’s in the Garden?

Spring is the best time to come and visit our gardens. Our amazing plants should be in full flower and are absolutely stunning at this time of year.

If you haven’t seen a 100 year old Magnolia tree in flower then you are really missing out. The plants we have in our gardens are nothing like you will see out and about. Many are huge, old, spectacular in colour, shape and perfume.
