A dedicated team of volunteers help to look after this tranquil spot
The quince tree in the corner of the garden produces beautiful fruit, which we harvest in late autumn. Don't miss our home-made jelly and quince bakewells on the Below Stairs Café menu at the end of October and November.
A large mature ash lies in the south-eastern corner of the garden and two rows of London plane trees guide you into the house entrance. Visit in autumn to see the colours change to magnificent yellows and oranges.
What's in flower
Look out for the handy chalkboards showing what's in bloom this season, including white Japanese anemones and agapanthus. See if you can spot the fuchsias about to flower for the second time this year.
The garden is a popular destination for lunching on the benches, listening to the Minster bells and enjoying the autumn colour. Whilst you're here, don't forget to strike a pose in the alfresco frame.
The walled garden is home to many birds, animals and insects. Whilst relaxing on the benches, look out for the resident wood pigeons, blackbirds and chaffinches. The gardeners also keep bees in the produce garden behind Treasurer's House.
In the interests of protecting the environment and keeping noise to a minimum, the gardening team at Treasurer's House only use hand tools. No motor mowers or hedge trimmers are used and most garden waste is composted and recycled as fertiliser.
