From spellbinding roses and lush subtropical plantings to zingy herbaceous borders, summer is full of delights at Hyde Hall
As well as providing spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, Clover Hill also has its own tranquil atmosphere for visitors to enjoy during warm summer days.
Our roses are spellbinding throughout summer, but for a special treat, time your visit to coincide with Rose Weekend (17 - 18 June) featuring guided walks and talks, quality roses to buy, expert rose advice and rose-themed stalls.
The Robinson Garden starts to come out in full vigour in June as Dicksonia antarctica and Ligularia przewalskii rise above the sea of Darmera peltata.
The borders in the Queen Mother's Garden give a long season of interest. Pick up ideas on beautiful planting combinations to keep summer colour going in your own garden.
Admire the Farmhouse Garden, where crisp formal hedges enclose relaxed planting in a series of square beds. The large central pot makes a dramatic statement with its lush architectural foliage.
As summer progresses, Crocosmia ‘Spitfire’, Solidago ‘Goldenmosa’, kniphofias and Dahlia ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ add a zingy, subtropical feel to this section of the herbaceous borders.
Perched near the top of the hill, the Dry Garden at Hyde Hall provides colour from plants such as Knautia macedonica and Acanthus spinosus during the summer months.
Visitors explore the lush tropical border in the Queen Mother's Garden. The border looks good right through until early autumn, with its bold architectural foliage.
Drifts of anemones and day lilies make a photogenic sight by the Lower Pond.
