The formal gardens

Dudmaston’s gardens have year-round appeal, with many different varieties of plants and a rolling landscape leading the eye across Big Pool and onto the Shropshire Hills beyond.

Spring is always the favourite season for our gardeners, the gardens come back to life after winter, the spring flowers bloom and birdsong entertains the visitors.    Why not have a chat to them when you see them working in the garden and find out more about our fantastic gardens.

Find all our seasonakl vegetables with a stroll through the kitchen garden

Our Kitchen Garden grows a full range of seasonal vegetables which are used by our tea-room to create delicious food for you. Why not take a look at our recipes and see what you can create with the family at home?

We are planning the vegetable garden for the Spring, and I shall prune the roses soon, mid-March here. The snow has battered them. I have seen a few short-stemmed primroses and buds of hypatica (anemone)
