The Hardwick gardens are a place for discovery, refreshment and enjoyment. There is something for each season from the stunning summer south borders to the beauty of the stumpery and winter border.

Something for every season

The Hardwick garden has something to discover through all the seasons. In summer the south borders are in full bloom and the warm peace of the garden is enticing to everyone. The late spring is the best time to explore the orchards as the stunning blossom attracts all sorts of insects.

The vegetable plot bursting with greens to harvest and herb gardens look wonderful in the fullness of autumn. Stroll along the paths to see the leaves turn a vibrant golden orange. In the winter the coloured stems and architectual structures of the winter border are a delight along with the jewel like iris and shapes of the stumpery.
