Catch the last of the summer sun at Cliveden
Up until the end of September, the summer schemes around Cliveden are in their final bloom. With striking colour combinations of vibrant reds, dusky pinks and sunshine yellows, together with potent floral scents, Cliveden’s 2017 summer gardens are not to be missed.
Outdoor art exhibition
Internationally acclaimed artist Bernar Venet has placed a collection of large-scale sculptures in Cliveden’s gardens; challenging you to re-think the space they sit in. Cliveden has historically been home to controversial and striking art and continues to do so by embracing collections such as this. Venet’s works will be on display until mid-October 2017.
Colour at Cliveden
Heavy summer rain has helped to colour up the 40,000 bedding plants currently on display this season at Cliveden. On the Parterre, the 16 triangular beds have been filled with bright planting combinations of red salvias, white begonias, blue ageratum, yellow marigolds and spider plant edging. The central azalea beds are planted up with gladioli called ‘Glamourglads’, and they certainly hold true to their name. They’re a new breed of dwarf gladioli hybrids which grow to just 60cm tall. The semicircle at the southern end of the Parterre is filled with 7,500 ‘Devil’s Delight’ begonias which is a repeat of the popular Long Garden bedding from last summer.
