The garden is a Royal Horticultural Society Partner Garden and is open everyday from March to October except on Sundays. We welcome all types of visitors. We trial and propagate our plants from here.
We believe the garden is set apart from others for two main reasons; it is designed to blend into the countryside (we have a bit of woodland) and it contains an extensive collection of plant varieties; over 4000 at last count.
We are not a park or country estate! This makes us different from many other gardens open to the public. The style of the garden is intended to be subtle. As mentioned, we hope to blend in with the surrounding countryside. The garden area extends to approximately 6 acres - about 3 or 4 football pitches. The length of time visitors usually spend in the garden is anything between half an hour to half a day. It depends on the person and their interests! For guidance; when we give a guided tour of the garden to groups it takes us just over one hour to get around on average.
