For soldiers recovering at the Stamford Hospital, it wasn't just the indoor environment that was important. Soldiers spent lots of time outdoors, relaxing and recuperating in all weathers. Click below to find out more about how the garden was used during the First World War.
From the striking silver of the birch triangle through to highly scented shrubs, the winter garden is a welcome burst of colour and fragrance in the coldest months of the year. Open from 11am until dusk daily. Thousands of spring bulbs will signal the start of spring next year and in the meantime you can enjoy an ever changing display of colour, texture and structure.
The Victory Garden
During the First World War gardeners on the home front were encouraged to grow fruit, vegetables and herbs on any available land to supplement their diets. This year a cluster of Victory Gardens will be recreated at Dunham. These small plots will contain a mixture of fruit, vegetable and herb varieties grown during the First World War, including many heritage cultivars no longer grown today.
