The Planting

Following the park's restoration in 2010 the planting continues to be reviewed regularly. The style reflects that of the 1930s.

Walking round you will find mixed herbaceous borders after Gertrude Jekyll, feature rockeries and a formal rose garden. 

There are many specimen trees of interest throughout the park.

Shrub borders are planted with berrying shrubs which provide food and shelter for wildlife and wild flowers grow on the bank sides.

Bulb displays make a spring visit well worthwile and traditional bedding displays provide seasonal colour.

The Jurassic Garden is planted with ferns, palms and specimen trees.
