Summer in the gardens at Baddesley Clinton

The herbaceous borders in Baddesley's walled garden are coming into full flower

Lift your spirits and enjoy the delights of early summer in the garden here at Baddesley. Peonies and roses make our gardens the perfect place to take a leisurely stroll in the sun.

The wildflower meadow in the middle of the gardens is a haven of tranquility for bees and butterflies amidst beautiful wildflowers.

The walled garden is full of flowers in the summer, from perennial sweet peas and foxgloves in the box borders to the dahlias which should be in full flower from August. The annual border will be looking its best in July with flowers in all colours including blue!

Our new vegetable garden should be full and cropping will be well underway with the produce going to the restaurant.

The recently restored vinery is now in use and we're growing crops which will also be used in our restaurant. The adjacent cut-flower borders not only look beautiful, but provide flowers for us to decorate the house with.
