Evenley Wood Snowdrops

Evenley Wood Garden

A hidden gem in the Northamptonshire countryside

Set amongst the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, this 60-acre privately owned woodland garden contains a large and notable collection of plants; ranging from unusual trees and shrubs to a wide selection of lilies and other bulbs.

The garden’s unusual band of acid soil, in this otherwise predominantly alkaline area, provides the opportunity to cultivate plants such as rhododendrons, camellias, and magnolias, which would not ordinarily thrive in this location.

Carpets of named snowdrops in February run into wonderful spring bulbs and the garden’s 800m long Scilla ‘stream’, as the garden jumps into life. Some 100 magnolias follow and are later joined by the first flush of new leaves, rhododendrons and azaleas. In the summer, over 300 roses and 150 lilies emerge, including Lilium ‘Evenley Jane’, which was developed and propagated on site. As the season slows down, a wonderful display of autumn colours can be seen in the leaf, bark, seeds and berries of the garden’s plant collection, ranging from beautiful rustic oranges and fiery reds to greens, gold and brown. Collections of particular note in the garden include oak, pear, apple, maple and what is possibly the largest collection of euonymus in Europe. These sit alongside hardy bulb collections including lilies, spanning all hybrid types, scillas and snowdrops.
