The vibrant South Cottage garden

Our garden ‘rooms' are very different in their planting schemes. The Purple Border by the library and the iconic White Garden add their vivid and ivory colours to the garden this summer. The vibrant planting in the South Cottage garden was Vita's idea and it's well on the way to being sensational again this year.

Our exhibitions

Our two exhibitions in the Oast and Tower tell the story of Vita and Harold's wedding and unorthodox marriage and how they saved the garden from ruin. Enjoy these amazing stories when you next pay us a visit.
