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.

With a wide variety of Acers and deciduous trees the views across the garden and onto the Shropshire countryside beyond are amazing in Autumn. It’s harvest time in our orchard and kitchen garden so an important time of year for our gardeners with lots of work to do while the sun still shines. 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)
