Millefiori - A Garden of One Thousand Flowers

Show Gardens

The structure and hard landscaping of this formal garden were inspired by the beautiful ancient ‘millefiori’ glasswork artefact found amongst the Staffordshire Hoard, with its literal meaning of one thousand flowers.

It is a colourful and vibrant spring garden with vertical and horizontal interest wrapped around a wonderful arbour.

The garden invites the visitor to take the journey to the centre and pause for a moment to enjoy the space within. All the while they are enveloped by the warmth of the colour-themed planting below and bathed in the coloured light beaming down from the stained glass dome above.
