The very favoured micro-climate of kindly winter temperatures and shelter from the wind allow all manner of exotic and half hardy plants to flourish. The planting schemes are appropriate to the varying individual habitats but carry the unifying theme of sculptural forms, textures and colours which harmonise with what nature has already provided.

The plants create a restful verdancy whilst having their own drama through form and foliage. In particular through the notable collection of palm trees, succulents and bamboo.

For more information on our planting the below sources provide a useful map and an up to date comprehensive list of all the plants we have in the gardens.

Unfortunately due to the natural contours of the land, access to the gardens is severely limited for those with physical disabilities and is unsuitable for motorised scooters, wheelchairs and prams. The gardens are steep in many places, rising to 70m above sea level.
