Morton Hall Gardens are located on the crest of a steep embankment. The eight acres of garden and park combine historic and new features in a highly aesthetic fashion and provide the backdrop for a collection of nearly a thousand plant varieties. Accompanied by the owner or the Head Gardener, visitors take a tour around the house, through a series of distinctive but linked garden rooms. The journey starts in the West Garden with its bold Mediterranean style planting and stunning views. It continues through the orchard and the walled Kitchen Garden with its ‘expressionist’ herbaceous borders. A gateway leads on to the ‘impressionistic’ South Garden, brimming with roses, clematis and herbaceous planting in soft pastels. Past a magnificent chestnut tree, the path continues down through a woodland rock garden planted in cool hues. At the far end, a laurel dome opens out onto a Japanese style garden with two ponds and a tea house. The planting in this area combines Asian and European shrubs and perennials. The journey continues through a magnificent meadow which, in spring, boasts thousands of fritillaries, daffodils, anemones and primulas. The circle is completed passing through the ‘New Garden’ with its selection of species roses and flowering trees.
