What to see - November
Variegated evergreens provide interest and colour in the cafe courtyard and stable yard.

In the walled garden some of the vegetable plots are being left fallow to be prepared for next year's crops.

Splashes of colour are provided by late flowering stalwarts, including the delicate Aster ericoides with its small white and pink flowers and in the corner, by the Bug Hotel, the feathery seed heads of Clematis tangutica will shine on sunny days.

Around the sunken garden the hollies are carrying their shiny, red fruits soon to be eaten by birds.

Burton Manor Restoration Company may have started their works - so please be guided by any instructions displayed for your safety.

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.
