In March and April don’t miss the fabulous blue carpet of 'Glory-of-the-snow' (Chinodoxa) spread beneath the pleached lime walk.
Another highlight are the swathes of daffodils under the trees.
Our famous displays of traditional roses in the walled gardens are worth a visit in June. But don't forget that our gardens are beautiful throughout the year.
As the roses fade in July and August the unrivalled herbaceous planting takes over. Enjoy densely planted drifts of classic cottage garden plants in lavender-lined borders.
September sees the beginning of autumn colour, intensifying through October and November as foliage turns through fiery shades of crimson, butter-yellow, scarlet and deep purple.
As the leaves fall, the late-flowering shrubs, such as Mahonia and bright-stemmed Dogwood-Cornus and Rubus, take over in the winter garden. Scented winter honeysuckle and, in early spring, Daphne delight with their flowers and fragrance.
The land around Mottisfont has been shaped and cultivated for many centuries. Each owner has made their mark on the landscape and gardens creating a great mix of formal lawns and walks as well as specialist spaces such as the walled garden and winter garden.
