Visit: Morton Hall Gardens and Meadow Farm Garden
Time & Location
About the Event
We will arrive at Morton Hall for 11am for a guided tour with the head gardener followed by a light lunch of soups or quiches. We will arrange to car share as it's 45 minutes away. Morton Hall is one of Worcestershire's best kept secrets. Perched atop an escarpment with breathtaking views, hidden behind a tall hedge, lies a unique garden of outstanding beauty. A garden for all seasons, it features one of the country's largest fritilary meadows, sumptuous herbaceous summer borders, a striking potager, a majestic woodland rockery and an elegant Japanese Stroll Garden with tea house.
Meadow Farm Garden and Nursery - The garden is laid out as a blend of formal and informal areas, includes a natural stream, paved and seating areas, vistas and enclosed areas, a scree bed and wide borders of herbaceous planting. The remainder of the 2 acre meadow is now managed as a wildlife reserve to encourage native flora and fauna. The nursery, which is not open to the public is in the process of being reduced due to retirement, but still specialises in herbaceous perennials propagated and grown on site. Included in the price are tea / coffee and some of Diane's outstanding cakes which will be available at the end of the tour.
Cost £21 inclusive of lunch and tea. (Share petrol costs in the car you're travelling in. Booking is essential by 1st May.
