Waterperry Gardens near Oxford

<
>

Just a stone’s throw from Oxford nestles Waterperry Gardens. Made famous by Beatrix Havergal who established her School of Horticulture for Ladies here from 1932 to 1971, it’s now home to 8 acres of beautifully landscaped ornamental gardens, a quality plant centre and garden shopgallery  and gift shopmuseum and tea shop.  Waterperry Gardens is a magical place where you are surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers, classical borders, modern planting, secret corners and long vistas. Originally the emphasis was on food production rather than spectacular ornamental gardens. Over the past twenty years though the gardens have developed and grown, and many new projects have been undertaken and completed. You’ll now find a Formal Garden, the Mary Rose Garden, a Waterlily Canal and the Long Colour Border, and a recently planted small arboretum in the meadow area beyond the canal.
