Brantwood at Trott’s Garden

Trott’s Garden, the latest garden to list is recognised as a Garden of International Significance. World-renowned Knot Gardens and rare plant and tree specimens, accompanied by a striking entrance via a 110-metre perennial and herbaceous border. A must see for any garden enthusiast. This area is divided into some smaller gardens, by well-maintained and buttressed Cupressus Macrocarpa hedging.

This flat and well proportioned garden covers seven acres clothed by rare and beautiful trees. Betula, Magnolia, English Beech and Cornus act as a mantle for underplanting's of Rhododendrons, Perennials and many unusual plants. The way leads to the Red Garden bordered by Berberis 'Little Favourite', the colour scheme highlighted by groups of Berberis 'Hellmond's Pillar' and Sambucus 'Guincho Purple', and then through a Lime Walk.  A large reflecting pool well-planted with Gunnera and many Hosta varieties, that is sheltered on one side by Silver Birches, is a lovely feature offering photo opportunities from many different directions.
