Join us on this Autumn Members only Insiders Walk looking at a number of the amazing and curious wonders of our gardens


The word curiosity means 'the desire to know or to learn and this can be of a scientific or artistic interest. It might mean a 'curious detail or feature or anything rare or strange.' (The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary).
After morning tea and introductions at Plant Craft Cottage let us show you some of the wonderful botanical curiosities in the Gardens.
It might be the oldest exotic plant or the highest tree; the tree with a fossil history or the only tree in its genus. It might be the plant that gave Stradivarius the marvellous red varnish he used on his violins, or plants that belonged to the dinosaur age. It might be the story of the discovery of plants thought long lost or discovered by chance.
It might be all of these curious stories and the plants that made them into oddities. To quote Alice: ‘Curiouser and curiouser!’
