Howick Hall Gardens

The gardens here are primarily the work of Charles, 5th Earl Grey, and his family, and are home to a herbaceous rockery filled with geraniums, lupins and a range of roses planted to flower in summer, while winter welcomes the snowdrops that dominate the grounds. The Wild Bog Garden is Howick Hall’s piece de resistance, dug out in 1991 to form a small pond, the surrounding area features plants from China, India, New Zealand and Europe. 

Must see: The Silverwood woodland garden was created by Lord Grey in 1930, containing a magnificent collection of rhododendrons that fill the garden with colour. Most of the rhododendrons flower from the end of March until June, but the white flowers of the clethra delavayi blossom until late July.
