About the event

Regarded as one of the finest private gardens in the UK,  there are magnificent collections of trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and conifers adding to the interest all year round with an abundance of rare plants as well as familiar favourites.

There are many fine features including a stunning pool and rock garden planted with choice alpines and miniature bulbs, an Anemone pavonina meadow, a rare tufa garden and a dramatic fern stumpery. The ruin garden and Christopher Lloyd border put the spotlight on some inspirational seasonal planting.

Throughout the garden, urns and patio pots are imaginatively planted.

‘Adam’s Garden’ is an area within John’s Garden dedicated to the memory of John’s former head gardener Adam Greathead who died aged 27 in 2017. This  tranquil space is home to a fine collection of named snowdrops, rare conifers, an island bed planted for spectacular Summer colour and a delightful Mediterranean border.

John’s Garden has been featured on TV as well as in numerous articles in the national and gardening press, and has been described by Carol Klein as ‘the most loved and looked after garden I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting’.
