The Garden at Boldshaves

The garden at Boldshaves has been substantially redeveloped over the last 20 years and new features continue to evolve.

The garden is part terraced, south-facing, with a walled garden containing a variety of semi-hardy and southern hemisphere plants; a Camellia dell; herbaceous borders, including the well-known Red Borders; a Flame Bed; an Italian Garden; a garden planted up in 2012 to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee; a vegetable garden; a wide variety of old-fashioned English roses; and a herb garden given over to both culinary and medicinal herbs.

The ancient woodland which borders the gardens is accessible throughout the year, and is particularly to be admired in the Spring when woodland anemones and bluebells flower in succession. In April and May the sound of nightingales throughout their mating season is worth a visit on its own.

Plants are for sale in the small nursery area on all days when the gardens are open.
