Blooming marvellous borders at Tredegar House

Iris flowers in the Cedar Garden

Set in the heart of our 90 acre parkland are three distinct yet intricate garden rooms for you to explore and enjoy this summer. With herbaceous borders in abundance, June and July really are the best months to catch them at their most beautiful.

The Orchard Garden

As part of our conservation commitment to increasing diversity and reversing the alarming decline of Britain’s wildlife we have let the grass grow to reflect the habitat of a traditional Orchard.

Pathways roaming the long pasture are maintained for those looking for a peaceful meander through this beautiful wilderness.

The Cedar Garden

The Cedar Garden is a real highlight not to be missed at this time of year.

Wander along the paths to absorb the wonder of the herbaceous borders, with the pastel hues of the Foxgloves, the delicate flowers of the pinks and the swathes of pale yellow Sysyrinchium Striatum, a real favourite of our regular visitors.

Keep an eye out for the addition of Taishan Gold Marigolds and their tightly packed petals to the borders surrounding Sir Briggs’ memorial.

With deckchairs and traditional garden games on the lawns, the Cedar Garden is the perfect space to enjoy some family time on the weekend. During the week, the tranquil surroundings provide the ideal backdrop for a spot of reading or just some quiet reflection.

" The gardens were very calming and tranquil and clearly well-tended to. The quoits and skittles on the lawn were an unexpected and very entertaining addition!"
