Discover how domestic gardens have evolved over the past five centuries. Set among this fascinating collection of rescued historic rural buildings are six delightful gardens, each representing the period and social status of its accompanying dwelling. Together they show how gardens developed from purely utilitarian to increasingly decorative. Herbs feature widely, grown for both culinary and medicinal use, as do vegetables, with many heritage varieties and intriguing, rarely seen crops such as skirrets and carlin peas.
With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.
To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.
Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.
Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
