The Garden

The garden at Sledmere is gaining increasing prominence for its dynamic and innovative development programme.

Many of our visitors return on a regular basis to see what’s new; nine years in, the garden has become a place to explore and discover different planting areas that have an emphasis on form and colour and overall impact on the eye. The expansive range of plants used and different naturalistic gardening techniques employed help attract many different birds, butterflies and bees so wildlife enthusiasts as well as plant lovers should feel at home.

From our latest designed formal fruit garden with apple and pear trees trained into unusual shapes to our potager which was the first redevelopment, a strong structural element runs through the garden. Each area created has a different feel from the last and each element begs to be explored drawing you through the garden losing sense of time in the process. As the garden changes with the seasons you are offered an extensive collection of daffodils and other spring bulbs, vibrant tulips, wonderful scented roses and a stunning late summer display of tender perennials and annuals in the acclaimed double ‘exotic’ borders. Visitors are encouraged to explore the garden at their leisure and dogs on leads are also very welcome.
