Notice: Spring colour is blooming at Emmetts Garden.
Interesting hillside garden with year-round features
Charming Emmetts Garden is an Edwardian estate that was owned by Frederic Lubbock, becoming both a plantsman's passion and a much-loved family home.
The garden was laid out in the late 19th century, and was influenced by William Robinson. It contains many exotic and rare trees and shrubs from across the world.
Standing on one of the highest spots in Kent, Emmetts Garden offers panormaic views over the unspoilt Weald as well as some great walking opportunities.
When you visit, you can explore the rose and rock gardens, take in the views and enjoy shows of spring flowers and shrubs, followed by vibrant autumn colours.
Spring is here
Emmetts Garden is known for its spring colour. The daffodils are already out in abundance with plenty of blossoming camellia and magnolia in the north and south gardens as well as plenty of colour in the alpine and rock garden. We're expecting the tulips to be out by the end of April to add even more colour along with the bluebells in the banks beyond.
