Hergest Croft Gardens
Hergest Croft is unusual in having been gardened continuously by four generations of the Banks family over the past 120 years
70 acre garden in the Welsh Marches, with spectacular views to the Black Mountains. Hergest Croft has more than 5,000 rare trees and shrubs, holds the National Collections of maples and birches as well as over 90 'champion trees', plus an impressive collection of azaleas. Maple Grove contains many new plants, introduced from all over the world, and in Park Wood a secluded valley with over 30 acres of giant rhododendrons and exotic trees creates a positively Himalayan scene. Unusual vegetables are grown in the Kitchen Garden, alongside an avenue of ancient apple trees.
More formal gardens, including roses, irises, herbaceous borders and a rockery surround the Arts & Crafts house (not open). A garden for all seasons, from spring blossom to spectacular autumn colour. Visiting this unique and atmospheric garden, created over 120 years by four generations of the Banks family, is a truly memorable experience.
