This autumn visitors to Borde Hill Garden in West Sussex have even more visiting days to choose from as the garden will be open daily in September and October. (previously only open at weekends for Autumn). The autumn colours extend from the garden into panoramic views across the lakes and 200 acres of rolling parkland.
Family in residence, Andrewjohn and Eleni Stephenson Clarke are hoping for an Indian summer in 2012 to tempt plenty of visitors to see the garden later in the year when the wide varieties of acers, oaks, maples and limes in the park and woodland have created a dazzling display of colour, texture and shape.
In the Azalea Ring, an enormous Cornus Kousa (Japanese Dogwood) takes centre stage appearing to be almost aflame with its spectacular autumnal orange red foliage.
Visitors are also encouraged to visit the Italian Garden, which is one of the most popular rooms in the entire Garden and a real favourite, the Rose Garden, and the sub-tropical Round Dell, all of which feature late flowering roses, asters, cannas lilies, dahlias and much more.
Borde Hill caters for all the family with an Adventure Playground containing climbing frames and zip-line. Dogs are permitted on a lead and there are pushchair and wheelchair pathways throughout the formal garden.
Cafe Elvira, which offers a varied menu of locally sourced and home-coooked food, and The Green Tree Gallery will be open for refreshments and early Christmas shopping.
Situated just north of Haywards Heath, West Sussex, Borde Hill Garden is open daily (10am to 6pm or dusk if earlier) from March 10th to November 4th. Price for adults is £8 and children three years and over is £5. A family day ticket starts at £22. Discount for groups of 15 or more.
