Whitlenge Gardens & Nursery

(Worcestershire Gardens)

      
Hartlebury Worcestershire England
Description : 

Wander through three acres of beautifully landscaped gardens situated in the picturesque Worcestershire countryside. The gardens surround a 17th century cottage which was once part of the Bishop of Worcester's estate. If you would like advice on your "plot" or just need help and inspiration then come and walk through our "Gardens within Gardens" and enjoy the peace and quiet of our little bit of English Heaven..


worcs whitlenge55The gardens are planted with over 800 varieties of mature trees, shrubs, perennials, alpines, heather's etc, chosen to give all year round colour and interest.

Walk through the twisted pillar pergola, which is planted with fan trained apples and pears and is a picture all year round.

We have a large bog garden with the gigantic leaves of Gunnera (some six feet across) from midsummer through to Autumn.

The water features comprise 3 pools and a small stream, all built by our own students. There are also millstone, rock and cobble bubblers, and several wall and floor mounted water features plus many more inspiring ideas to fit gardens of all shape and sizes.

Visit our "Walk of the Gods" - a tribute to the many, diverse religions and spiritualities of our wonderful world.

New from 2018 our interlocking circles of our 'Garden of Thyme.'

At the front of the house we have a scree garden that incorporates the cobble bubbler feature and also our Green man fountain, the inspiration for which is the English god of the wild wood, and was created by the artist Rodney Munday.
The house and gardens have served many purposes over the last three centuries. In early years it was a coach house for the estate and later the home of the housekeeper and butler of Whitlenge House, which the cottage stood in the grounds of. It has also been the village dairy and in late Victorian years housed three separate families.

We serve delicious homemade hot and cold meals from our extensive menu including seasonal specials, steaming soups, freshly prepared sandwiches and perfect Paninis.

SHEILDNestling in the heart of Worcestershire is one of this country's greatest secrets. Surrounded by parkland, largely unchanged for over 400 years, lays the 30 acre paradise of Spetchley Park Gardens. Spetchley is not a garden of formal cut lawns or manicured beds but rather a wondrous display of plants, shrubs and trees woven into a garden of many rooms and vistas. It boasts some of the finest private collections of plants in the country with Daffodil, Iris, Lillies, Peonies and Magnolias vibrant in the spring and leading into summer when the enormous herbaceous borders come into their own.

Spetchley is a garden that is constantly changing and adapting and is a treasure for everyone whether it is plant enthusiasts or those seeking a tranquil oasis in which to relax. With its wonderful tea room selling delicious hot and cold food it allows visitors to completely unwind and enjoy its beautiful setting. You can pop into the Interpretation Centre to learn more of its history or plants or stroll down to the Deer Park to marvel at the majestic herds of Red and Fallow Deer. Don't forget to visit the Plant Centre where you can purchase beautiful plants and shrubs to put into your garden.
