About the garden
The visionary design influences of Mulberry founder Roger Saul can now be seen coming to fruition at his Kilver Court garden in Somerset. His unique planting schemes using colour and texture are evident in his newly redesigned 100m colourist herbaceous border, formal parterre and subtropical island.
This eclectic garden is also home to one of the largest sculptures in the world, a breathtaking 15-metre-high Victorian viaduct.
Explore the garden nursery, which is a treasure trove of garden gifts, plants and tools. In the herbaceous border the foliage is the predominant feature rather than blooms, with hundreds of interesting plant varieties including Euphorbia x pasteurii, Geranium maderense and Salvia leucantha. The retro 1960s rockery comes into its own in the winter months, with colourful conifers and Asian acers in hues of burgundy, gold and copper. A tranquil waterfall runs through its centre, adding a sense of peace and calm.
Inspired by the gardens at the Palace des Invalides in Paris, the formal parterre of box and yew hedging creates an elegant symmetry in the gardens. In contrast to this is a woodland stumpery, filled with ferns and surrounded by bluebells, ramsons and snowdrops in the spring.
