Summer Family Trail: Gertrude’s Garden

Sat, 21st Jul to Fri, 17th Aug

Over 100 years ago, it was the task of plantswoman Gertrude Jekyll to fill Hestercombe’s Formal Garden with a dazzling display of plants, climbers and shrubs.

Follow in her footsteps as you work your way around this summer trail by filling your trail sheet with the flowers you find.

From lavender to irises and clematis to gladioli, you’ll discover plenty of plants to grow your own garden design with.

Head back to Hestercombe House after completing the trail and visit the Portman Room, where you can find items that once belonged to the great gardener Gertrude Jekyll herself.

Pick up a trail sheet when you arrive at the Visitor Reception.

Trail is 50p per child. Normal admission applies.
