Garden Tours

Are you part of a garden group, gardening club, W.I., college, horticultural society, flower arranging group, etc? Then contact us to find out how you can enjoy one of our Guided Tours.

We take pre-booked parties around the three acre gardens, but as a guided tour you are taken through the magnificent Moon Gate into Keith and Frans own private walled garden, discussing the history of the house and grounds (they used to belong to the Bishop of Worcester's estate) and explain the modern history and planning of the gardens, naming and discussing the 800 or so varieties (well, we certainly try) that are in the garden now.

We discuss the building and creation of some of the features (people love to know about the twisted brick pergola, the cave and fernery and the mystical "sword in the stone" water feature). Tea and cakes can also be booked and of course you can sit and relax in the Design Studio/Tea room.

We'll tell you all about the bog garden with the gigantic leaves of Gunnera (some six feet across) from mid summer through to Autumn and point out the various water features; the pools, and small streams, the millstone, rock and cobble bubblers, and several wall and floor mounted water features plus many more inspiring ideas that you can take away and perhaps incorporate into your own gardens.

With over 800 varieties of mature trees, shrubs, perennials, alpines, heather's etc, chosen to give all year round colour and interest, you'll be awash with knowledge by the end of your tour. A large percentage of our plants are botanically labelled with Kew-style professionally engraved labels which we can supply.

So if you want to hear more about how Whitlenge Gardens came into being or want a little inspiration for your next project then come and join us on a tour through our "Gardens within Gardens" and learn more about our little bit of English Heaven.
