Description of Garden

Set amongst the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, a privately owned Evenley Wood Garden has large and notable collection of plants ranging from unusual trees and shrubs such as roses, lilacs, maples and euonymus to a wide selection of bulbs including 120 lily varieties, 80 different snowdrops and many daffodils.

The garden's unusual band of acid soil, in this predominantly alkaline area, provides the opportunity to cultivate plants such as rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias, which would not ordinarily thrive in this location.

During its history, the Garden has produced 8 plants which are recently available on a market.

History Of Garden

Originally a working wood for nearby Evenley Hall, the wood was acquired by its current owner around 30 years ago, who began the ongoing process of developing the garden and its plant collection.
