Recently the collection has been extended with an emphasis on selecting plants with the best foliage or bark colours as well as beautiful flowers. The plants are scattered throughout the gardens, but the majority are in the new Rhododendron Garden which opened last year. Entry to this area is up a short flight of steps and through an atmospheric Rhododendron tunnel. Here, the Rhododendrons are underplanted with daffodils and wildflowers. A wander through the rest of the five acres of gardens will not disappoint with a range of flowering times and flower colour to satisfy even the most avid Rhododendron fan!
