Gardenvisit Editorial

A walled garden surrounded by a woodland garden. It is close to Chesil beach and separate from the site of the now-demolished house in which its maker, Lord Ilchester, lived. The old kitchen garden is given a sub-tropical air by the palm trees but the real attraction is the lush planting in the valley garden. It has some of the most extensive gunnera plantings in England.

Opening times - All year. Daily except Christmas period. Open 10am to 6pm or dusk.

    A very significant collection of some choice trees, shrubs and perennials.
    The woodland area especially is a plantmans paradise, and probably worthy of about 3 visits a year especially in the late spring ,early summer to observe all the plant gems.
    The nursery had a very good selection of good quality plants, although their on line nursery seems to stock unusual stuff.

    Sub-tropical garden close to chesil beach.

    the garden has plants from around the world.

    the gardens are split into sub gardens (sino-himalayan garden, southern hemisphere garden) there are architcural features (summerhouse) and a series of ponds.

    the old walled garden now features a colonial tea-house (pricey)

    fine hydrangea walk
