The Burrows Gardens

The Burrows Gardens have been developed by Craig Dalton since 1985, with input from Julian Dowle. There is an Italian garden, bog garden and white garden.

Head Gardener's Comment

A fabulous 5 acre garden set in delightful Derbyshire countryside. Immaculate lawns set off a variety of 'rooms' in the garden including Roman, Italian, Cornish and of course English garden themes. There are many rare plants to be found. There is certainly something for everyone, and we welcome meeting visitors to chat about anything to do with gardening.

The garden has been open to the public since 2006. There are many very mature trees and shrubs that combine beautifully with some more recent plantings.

Plants of note

Numerous! An all white garden; an entire bank of blue hyrangeas, the wollemi pine tree plus many more. Plants are also for sale.
