Summer Garden Tour

During your Garden Tour, you will be taken on a merry horticultural dance across the Bowcliffe Estate; past the Central Flowerbeds, Ballroom Borders, Bridal Beds, Chapel Walk, West Borders, and Boundary Beds. You’ll hear about the special rhythm of flowering times; with each taking centre stage at different times so as one part of the garden becomes quieter another crescendos into colour!

Head Gardener, Anna will show you the beautiful late flowering perennials including bee friendly Echinacea ‘Pallida’ and the floating Anemone x Hybrida ‘Richard Ahrens’, which adds a delicate flowering layer amongst the river swaths of Pervoskia ‘Little Spire’. You will also enjoy learning about a selection of ornamental grasses that add contrasting shapes and dramatic movement to the overall planting scheme. During the tour you will have the chance to see some of our special specimen trees within the Parkland & Ornamental Gardens and hear about the important successional tree planting projects across the Estate, designed for the future generations to enjoy.

The floor will be yours for questions with our gardens team before you move to the beautiful Bowcliffe Room to indulge in a divine Afternoon Tea. As a reminder of your day, you will also receive a wonderful gardening goody bag to take home.
