Birchall Tea’s Favourite Gardens

Jun 13, 2017 | #BirchallsBritain


At Birchall Tea we love nothing more than wandering aimlessly through a wonderful garden. June brings one of the best times of year to do so, as colour appears everywhere amongst our gardens. In honour of this wonderful time of year, we feature some of the finest gardens to visit across the land.


Helmingham Hall

Helmingham Hall, Suffolk 

Beauty and tranquility combine perfectly to provide a stunning experience as you walk the gardens of Helmingham hall. A classic parterre flanked by hybrid musk roses lies before a stunning walled kitchen garden with exquisite herbaceous borders and beds of vegetables interspersed by tunnels of sweet peas, runner beans and gourds. On the other side lies a herb and knot garden behind which is a rose garden of unsurpassable beauty.

Newby Hall, North Yorkshire 

A wonderful stately home surrounded by the most elegant of gardens with matchless herbaceous borders and wonderful walks.

Great Dixter Houser and Gardens

Great Dixter was the family home of gardener and gardening writer Christopher Lloyd – it was the focus of his energy and enthusiasm and fuelled over 40 years of books and articles. Now under the stewardship of the Great Dixter Charitable Trust and Christopher’s friend and head gardener, Fergus Garrett, Great Dixter is an historic house, a garden, a centre of education, and a place of pilgrimage for horticulturists from across the world.

Beth Chatto Gardens, Essex

The Beth Chatto Gardens began in 1960. From an overgrown wasteland of brambles, parched gravel and boggy ditches it has been transformed using plants adapted by nature to thrive in different conditions, an inspirational, informal garden has developed. Beth herself has won 10 consecutive golds at RHS Chelsea and a walk around her garden is a truly inspirational experience!

Veddw House and Garden, Wales 

The garden is set in the wonderful countryside of the Welsh border above Tintern. There are two acres of ornamental garden and two acres of woodland. A favourite part with visitors and ourselves is the dramatic reflecting pool.

The local landscape of rolling hills is reflected in the sinuous hedges that lead to the pool and provide the perfect backdrop for other planting schemes.
