Green Island Gardens 2-for-1 entry

Get one free entry with one full-paying adult, with your Gardeners’ World Magazine 2-for-1 entry card. Valid at 447 gardens.

These 20 acres feature many unusual trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs, often of borderline hardiness, which thrive in the garden’s mild microclimate. There is plenty to enjoy during late summer and autumn, including the main borders, which overflow with colour, and the Japanese garden with its vibrant acers and ferns. There is also an extensive woodland garden and a gravel garden where grasses and flowers mingle to provide contrasting colours and textures.
