Morton Hall Gardens, Holberrow Green, Redditch, Worcestershire
Elegance and horticultural excellence in unspoilt Worcestershire. Perched atop an escarpment with breath-taking views, lies a garden of outstanding beauty. A garden for all seasons, it features one of the country’s largest fritillary meadows, sumptuous herbaceous borders, a striking potager, a majestic woodland rockery and an elegant Japanese Stroll Garden.
Morton Hall Gardens are located on the crest of a steep embankment. The eight acres of garden and park combine historic and new features in a highly aesthetic fashion and provide the backdrop for a collection of over a thousand plant varieties. Accompanied by the owner or the Head Gardener, visitors take a tour through a series of distinctive but linked garden rooms.
The tour starts on the east side of the house with a short introduction into the history of the estate and the design of the garden. The visitors are then taken on a stroll through the individual garden rooms, on a route which is adjusted to the seasonal interest. In the spring, the magnificent bulb meadows take centre stage as well as the woodland gardens and the sumptuous tulip displays in the herbaceous borders. Later in the year, the focus is on the more formal gardens with their intricate blend of perennial and annual planting in elegant colour schemes. The tour concludes on the west side of the house with its spectacular views over the Vale of Evesham, framed by a bold Mediterranean style garden. The visitor will experience a series of unique garden scenes with dramatic plant displays against bold garden scapes.
There will be guided tour of the garden only by the owner and/or Head Gardener covering the history of the estate, the design of the garden and horticultural practices.
The garden is inspiring in every way, colour, texture, scents, variety of form, a garden lovers delight … What a fabulous experience… …The afternoon tea – heaven on Earth…
