The traditional Herbaceous border runs along the length of the top terrace. Probably at its best during May and June, we endeavour to keep interest all season.
The Rose Garden: originally planted during the 1920/30s was replanted with modern Hybrid T roses in the 1970s and these are now gradually being replaced with David Austin roses. June is the best month for roses but there is a good show until mid- September.
The Middle Terrace: is the Swimming Pool garden and this is not open to the public.
The Winter Walk: is the lower terrace. So called because originally it was planted with trees and shrubs that have winter interest. Some of these (Drymus winteri and Parrotia persica) still remain but sadly during a very cold spell about 7 years ago quite a few were lost and have had to be replaced.
