The Gardens at Grey Abbey House


The gardens at Grey Abbey House include mature woods, borders and a southern hemisphere collection along with parkland meadows and fields.


Part of the Chilean collection of plants and seeds from the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh is held in the southern hemisphere garden, together with plants from Tasmania, New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina and Brazil, some of which have been collected by the present owners on their travels.


The Walled Garden has been restored over the last twelve years, with a vegetable garden, late summer border and shrub rose border. The curved wall has been restocked with fan-trained fruit trees. The two orchards contain a collection of Victorian fruit trees, and a recently-planted collection of Irish apple trees.
