This is a wonderful, all-year-round Space, with 12 acres of research and teaching gardens.
The Large Bank is planted with shrubs, many of Mediterranean origin. The Green Border also contains
shrubs – arranged to show the diversity of foliage texture and greens. The Orchard contains a collection of ornamental crab apples. New Wood, in the centre of the
Harris Garden, consists of three rectangular blocks of young, mainly native trees. Sixty-thousand bulbs give colour from February to May. The Cherry Bowl boasts Japanese flowering cherries. Make sure you also explore the Red Border, Woodland Garden, Jungle Garden, Conifer Circle and Herbaceous Border.
Plants will be on sale and volunteers will serve delicious home made cakes and tea.
