Primula helodoxa in the Bog Garden

The restoration of the Bog Garden was the idea of Anne, Edmund’s second wife, and has a series of different views that cover the spring, summer, and a blaze of colour from the maples in autumn.

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’
