Details

At Spetchley you will find most aspects of gardening, the formal and informal, woodland and herbaceous.

April and May produce a wonderful display of spring bulbs, especially daffodils, as well as flowering trees and shrubs. The large collection of roses, both old-fashioned and modern, come into their own in June and July, whilst July, August and September reveal the great herbaceous borders in all their glory. Late September sees the start of the autumn tints. This is indeed a garden for all Seasons, and has been described as one of horticulture's best-kept secrets.

Close by is the Deer Park with its fine herds of red and fallow deer. This has changed little since the 17th Century and makes a delightful walk.

Spetchley is undergoing a historical “revival”. Extensive restoration work to the Lake is now complete and the conversion of the Old Cart Sheds into a Heritage Learning and Interpretation Centre is due for completion this spring. A new car park and Welcome Centre have given the Garden a much needed “face-lift”.
