To visit the Gardens, House & Gallery, please book a ticket online before you arrive. The Stables, Plant Centre & Caffè + Gelato are free to enter. Summer Late openings take place every Wednesday evening (except 30th June, 22nd September)
As you enter the gardens on your right is a patch of Portuguese laurel. The laurel had got far too big for its boots and was starting to rob space and light from other shrubs around it.
....so we have knocked it down a peg or two- In fact we have coppiced it to the ground!
It looks very dramatic but the laurel will soon put on more growth and fill the gap.
