Packwood Follies

Graham Baron Ash hosted a series of theatrical entertainments and plays in architectural structures in the gardens, which he called 'Follies'. These are now given a contemporary twist by Manchester based artist, Hilary Jack,.

What's that plant?

Find out the name of that plant you love in the garden

 Plants that are looking great are labelled in little vases, up the stairs in the Head Gardener’s office, in the corner of the Carolean Garden. If you’re stuck for the common or Latin name, why not check it out?

 

Packwood to Baddesley Clinton walk

This is a beautiful walk through the Arden countryside, taking in the Stratford Upon Avon Canal and two tranquil Warwickshire properties.

Now we have a café at Packwood, why not plan lunch at one property and a cream tea at another?

The kitchen garden

With help from his team of volunteers, John Richardson keeps the kitchen garden looking amazing. John is starring in a new film, 'Can't cook, can't garden', with Head Chef, Simon Taylor, from our cafe. John, can't cook and Simon can't garden, so they're going to teach each other their skills.

Plant Sales

Peter finding space for new plants for sale at Packwood House

We sell a variety of plants, grown in our greenhouses, in the kitchen garden. They're raised alongside the plants we grow for display in the garden and include many of the unusual varieties found in our borders.

Wildflower meadows

The wildflower meadow at Packwood House is ten years old

Some of our meadows are over 300 years old. The meadow near the Roman bath is damp and so irises grow well, as do quammash, ragged robin and the marsh euphorbia. In drier areas, by the canal, see if you can spot oxe-eye daisies, alliums and cowslips.
