Spring gardens at Hughenden
Spring is the perfect time to explore Hughenden's Italianate inspired gardens. The Disraeli's spent hours enjoying their beautiful garden either strolling the pleasure grounds or enjoying the evening sun from the parterre.
Hughenden's gardens are starting to show the first signs of spring as primroses, daffodils and naturalised spring bulbs come through.
Explore the formal gardens of Mary Anne, Benjamin Disraeli’s wife. Mary Anne created a domestic Victorian garden based on 16th-century Italianate gardening style with terraces, lawns and a parterre. Her designs for planting are still reflected in the schemes laid out by our garden teams today.
The bedding scheme on the parterre is changed every May and October.
Journey into the Walled Garden, a tranquil space for growing produce with soft fruit trees trained against the warm walls, fragrant herb beds, rotating vegetable plots and herbaceous borders stocked with bee-friendly blooms.
For a peaceful stroll visit Hughendens pleasure grounds and admire the inspiring views across the 18th century parkland and chalk stream. Created in the wilderness gardening style it is a chance to get lost in your own thoughts amongst the trees and shrubs.
