are open from April to September, see Visitor
Information for days and times,
and there is also an exciting programme of Special
Events for garden and art lovers.
Whatever month you choose to visit there is something to
delight the senses. From late March wild daffodils and narcissi
herald the beginning of the spring flowers. Through April
to May the various fruit trees blossom, bluebells carpet
the woodland, the magnificent wisteria cascades down the
rear of the Manor house and there are thousands of tulips
throughout the gardens. As the tulips fade our new plantings
of pastel hued azaleas bloom. June is fragrant with roses
and lavender while in July the scent of sweet peas and the
heady fragrance of lilies begin to perfume the air. The Kitchen
Garden provides for the house and café throughout
the season and is at its most bountiful in mid-summer.
Roses, lilies and a variety of summer bedding plants continue
through into August, then in late August and September the
hot borders come into their own with dahlias, cannas and
asters amongst the many late flowering herbaceous perennials.
