We have two different rock gardens. The historic Hugh Nettleford Alpine Garden is a real gem this month with Magnolia and many alpine plants in flower. The recently-built Alan King Alpine Garden is displays alpine and subalpine flora from Europe.

Please note, tours can change depending on staffing and weather conditions – tours will still go ahead but could be on a different subject from the one advertised.
