Conservation in action
Ever wondered what the House team get up to behind closed doors? Every morning before we open, the team clean and maintain the rooms of Chartwell so they are in great condition for visitors to enjoy.
The rhododendron bank
One of our works in progress is the bank opposite Chartwell house. The rhodendron ponticum, an invasive weed, have been cleared and new rhododendron have been planted with fences there to stop deer grazing on the young plants. Come back next year to see the Rhododendron 'Christmas', 'Pink Pearl' and 'Helene Schiffner'.
