The Dower House Garden

      
Bridgnorth Shropshire England
Description : 

The Dower House Garden is composed of a series of gardens in the style of different historical periods, each one identified with a particular individual or family who lived at Morville in the past.

The Hall itself dates back to the sixteenth century, but there was a Benedictine monastery occupying the site in medieval times, and this is where our story begins, with the Cloister Garden. The first owners of the house are commemorated by the Elizabethan Knot Garden, with its intricate pattern of sweet-smelling herbs. Then there is a 17th-century florist’s garden, an early 18th-century water garden, a Regency flower garden complete with miniature temple, a Victorian rose border, an Edwardian fruit and vegetable garden, and a romantic late 19th-century wilderness. 

 
Visit in April and May for stunning displays of old hyacinths in the Canal Garden, flamboyant old striped tulips in the Plat, and fruit trees in blossom - a medley of old varieties of apples, pears, plums, damsons, cherries, quince and medlar. Mid-May to the end of June is the time for roses: the Dower House Garden contains hundreds of fascinating historic varieties, all arranged in appropriate period settings - but most of these lovely roses only bloom once, so don't delay! July to August is a quieter time, when fragrant white lilies and old fashioned sweet peas fill the garden with scent; this is the time too to see clematis and the extensive agapanthus collection. September is perhaps Katherine's favourite time, when the Michaelmas daisy collection is in bloom, the apples are ripening and there is the first hint of autumn colour in the maple trees. But whatever time you come, you are assured of a warm welcome and a delicious homemade cream tea. 
 
The Dower House Garden is 3 miles from Bridgnorth and 5 miles from Much Wenlcock on the A458. Open 2- 6 pm, Weds, Suns. & Bank Hol. Mons, April to September.
