Set in Northamptonshire countryside, Evenley Wood Garden, created by Timothy Whiteley in 1980, is an extensive woodland garden containing a large and notable collection of plants and trees. The unusual band of acid soil, in this otherwise predominantly alkaline area, provides the opportunity to cultivate plants such as rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias, which would not ordinarily thrive in this location. A guided tour in the company of Head Gardener, Dan Winter, begins your visit. Springtime usually finds a ‘stream’ of scillas, white fritillaries, late narcissus and carpets of blue, pink & white bells, with some 100 magnolias beginning to flower. Sensible footwear advisable. If ground wet, paths not ideal for wheelchairs. Accessible toilets. Refreshments, not included, are available on a free flow basis.
