We are delighted to announce that we have recently been selected as a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Partner Garden, joining the select list of approximately 200 other specially chosen national and international gardens who partner with the RHS.
These gardens, such as Goldstone, are selected for their high standards of design and/or planting and their ongoing commitment to deliver an inspirational and stimulating experience for horticultural enthusiasts and visitors alike.
Visitors can also enjoy features in our award winning garden such as the double tiered herbaceous borders, including seasonal perennial planting schemes; an early flowering walled garden with nurturing micro-climate; immaculate rose garden and rose lined walkway; a sweeping lawn fringed with mature trees and shaded seating; a stunning laburnum arch, and the one acre kitchen garden with raised beds and herbal walkway. An area of 140 sq meters under an old cherry tree has recently been cultivated with wild flowers to compliment the colour scheme in the double tiered herbaceous borders.
