All through the year there is something to see at Mottisfont.
The recently restored Kitchen Garden is filled with vegetables and fruit. An arch leads from here into the spectacular Rose Garden. Home to the National Collection of pre-1900 old-fashioned roses, visit in June when the roses are at their best.
In the Spring, enjoy the spring bulbs flowering under the trees, in the Cherry Orchard and in the Winter Garden. Jonny Norton, Head Gardener has also planted thousands of tulips in the Kitchen Garden: ‘The colour choices were inspired by viola tricolor, the old medieval pansy that used to be grown for its many medicinal benefits.’
Visit in Autumn and enjoy wandering under the trees as they turn glorious colours of red, yellow and gold.
The Rose Garden is open late on summer evenings – check the website for details
