What to see - January

Not surprisingly, evergreens provide the 'backbone' planting in most gardens at this rather bleak time of year.

The hot house plants will continue to grow in the Glasshouse as long as light and temperature reach the required levels.

Inevitably the vegetable garden looks a little sad at this time of year.  Soon compost will be spread to replace the nutrients used by last year's crops.

SAFETY ADVICE WHEN VISITING THE GARDENS

Now that the restoration work has begun on the Manor, and in the grounds, access to some parts may not be permitted for health and safety reasons.  You are advised to read information notices carefully and follow the directions.

Who we are

The Friends of Burton Manor Gardens are a volunteer group dedicated to restoring and maintaining the walled garden within the grounds of Burton Manor. 

We have an active garden project reliant on volunteers and grants for the conservation of the original Victorian and Edwardian gardens. With the help of Heritage Lottery funding, a large Edwardian glasshouse has been restored to its original design. This glasshouse can be used both as a greenhouse and as an small events venue. 

Within the extensive grounds you can also visit a rare underground ice house. Currently the ice house is home to a colony of bats and therefore access inside is not possible. However the outside can be viewed on the perimeter walk.

The gardens are open daily from 10am until approximately 6pm.  Volunteers work in the gardens every Monday and Wednesday morning.
