Gardens and parks in London and the South East
See pioneering garden techniques in action at rose gardens, water gardens, winter gardens, grand parkland and more across the South East.
You might think of gardens being a spring or summer thing, but there's still plenty to see in our gardens across the South East this winter. From snowdrops at Stowe in Buckinghamshire, to aconites at Polesden Lacey in Surrey and brightly coloured dogwood at Mottisfont in Hampshire.
Leaves will be unfurling and buds will be bursting into colour in our gardens across London and the South East. From dramatic parterres and sweeping landscapes to walled gardens and orchards, you'll find gardens dotted with jewel-like cyclamens and tulips - the region will be bursting into spring.
We're hoping for waterlilies in the lakes at Sheffield Park in Sussex, and rambling roses at the world-famous rose garden at Mottisfont in Hampshire next summer. You'll be able to take in secret gardens like at Fenton House in Hampstead, London too. Here's to a summer of glorious garden colour at your local National Trust garden in the South East.
As long summer nights give way to cooler days, the colours in our gardens in and around the South East slide gently into warming tones. From the burgeoning dahlias and bulging pumpkins to early harvest pickings, the holidays may be over but many shrubs, climbers and herbaceous perennials aren’t ready to pack up just yet.
