Rich with the heady scent of summer, these traditional flowers come in many beautiful varieties.
Delicate fronds unfurl every spring in old tree stumps and wet ground, as they have for millions of years.
With grass at your feet and fruit ripening above, this shady spot is perfect for a hot summer day.
A British favourite, carpeting woodland floors in undulating swathes of green and purple from mid May.
Yellow heads bobbing in the breeze, these flowers carpet the ground as winter ends and spring begins.
White and green flowers burst into life in midwinter, through even the hardest of frosts.
Run your fingers through these plants to release a rich perfume or pick a few leaves to season a meal.
As morning frosts begin to set in, the leaves of trees and shrubs light up in reds, yellows and oranges.
Sheltered from winter winds and balmy in springtime, walls create a microclimate perfect for gardening.
With wildlife in abundance and a verdant canopy above, the woods are a perfect place to explore.
At the tail end of winter through into spring, the boughs of Cherry trees are heavy with beautiful flowers.
Experience another side of the gardens at night with a festive light trail. Additional entry fee may apply.
