Amazing azaleas, beautiful bluebells and magnificent magnolias – you will lose yourself within 180 acres of gardening wonderland.
Uncover some of the greatest gardening secrets in the country at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens between Romsey and Winchester. With 11,000 types of plants and 13 National Plant Collections you won’t be disappointed.
Or if you’d rather hug a tree, the gardens have the highest number of Champion Trees in the British Isles. Marvel at the 34 metre Shining Gum Tree, one of the tallest on the planet.
These gardens are not just for the green-fingered - there are lots for budding gardeners to do too. Let the kids run wild with saddleback pigs, ponds for dipping and “flying a carpet swing”, crawling through bamboo tunnels or negotiating the wobbly bridge.
Walk along Hydrangea Walk and Magnolia Avenue leading to Jermyns House. Here you can relax with a lovely cream tea and digest all you’ve discovered, and savour what is left to explore.
