From sunny perennial meadows to prairie style and tough easy-care, green lawn substitutes, Knoll’s 4-acre garden provides an abundance of practical planting ideas in an inspirational and relaxing environment.

A mini-arboretum of rare and unusual trees and shrubs frame an abundance of grasses and flowering perennials and anyone looking to bring nature into their own garden will find themselves spoilt for ideas.

Knoll’s owner, Neil Lucas is the UK’s leading authority on ornamental grasses. Best-selling author, RHS Council Member and Senior Judge, his guiding principles are key to the garden’s continuing evolution. Knoll’s Mediterranean-style gravel garden and the Sunny Meadow, adapted from a traditional English meadow to suit smaller English gardens, feature regularly in the national press. A new sedge meadow showcases the pure effects of soft green foliage taking its inspiration from the Californian style.

A varied event programme includes walks, workshops, plant fairs and masterclasses and Knoll’s Chelsea Gold Medal-winning nursery sells many of the plants found within the garden.

Open 1st February until 22nd December 2017
Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 5pm (10am – 4pm Nov – March).
Closed Sunday and Monday (except Bank Holiday Mondays)
In periods of adverse weather the garden may be closed for safety reasons.
