Winter in the garden at Berrington Hall

Find out what the gardeners are up to this winter...

It may be assumed that winter may be quite a quiet time for the garden team, but there is actually lots going on to keep our gardeners busy.

This winter there are lots of jobs to be done, such as lowering some of the overgrown laurel in order to expose the amazing views out into the ‘Capability’ Brown landscape.

We are also creating a new compost area to provide compost and mulch to feed the garden.

There are also opportunities for visitors to get involved with ‘visiteering’, where you can help us with leaf collecting to make leaf mould, and experience what it would be like to volunteer with us in the gardens here at Berrington.

This new year will also see orchard pruning begin with the 100 apple trees in the orchard, as well as a new cherry tree and rose wall created in the walled garden. If you want to get involved, you can also take part in our orchard pruning workshop on Sunday 2 February.
