How the garden is managed

Our gardeners curate this living piece of artwork, throughout the seasons to ensure our many visitors experience the garden as Lawrence Johnston its creator, would have wanted.

The 'garden of rooms' at Hidcote is home to a wide range of species, and the team of gardeners keep it looking great all year around.
