The Sir Henry Price Garden is at its most colourful at this time of year and the slips look good from spring through to autumn, with a carpet of Mediterranean shrubs. Hostas, rodgersias and astibes can be found in the Water Gardens, and in the Iris Dell the summer display of Japanese irises is unmissable. The Mansion borders look stunning with a rainbow of shades and the Southern Hemisphere Garden and Specimen Beds are filled with colourful shrubs and herbaceous plants.
