Heather Garden

Heather Garden

The Heather Garden to the east contains, besides a range of heathers, delightful trees and shrubs, giving all year interest of both flower and foliage. The Himalayan birch are represented with white, pink and even dark grey/brown bark; unusual dwarf Ginkgo cultivars show their butter yellow autumn colour; Pinus sylvestris ‘Gold Medal’ turns even more yellow during the cold winter months and you can find more unusual shrubs such as Tetrapanax papyrifera, with its large leaves the size of a small parasol. The heathers themselves change frequently, the oldest plants requiring replanting and renewal every 10 years or so, allowing new and different cultivars to be tried.
