251 Palmside Road, Culverden

Established and evolving

Palmside garden will convince you age has its advantages. Originally planted in the 1920s you’ll see many majestic trees, including oaks, ash, lime, chestnut and an evergreen magnolia.

Since the current owners moved here in 1984 variegated elm, gleditsia, silk tree, cherry trees, maples, dogwoods and magnolias have been added to the collection, including Acer brilliantissimum and Cornus controversa Variegata – also known as the Wedding Cake tree.

Arriving at the house you’re greeted by four magnificent oak trees, and a native garden by the car park. The house entrance is more formal with box hedging and standard viburnum in one area and roses in another. Wander around the garden and discover mixed borders of trees, shrubs and perennials creating layers of planting. In 2017 changes to the farm opened up the views across the plain – and what views they are – through mature trees across the Amuri Basin to Mt Lyford.

Note: Shortcut between The Willows and Palmside available via The Willows back drive.

Please note: This garden will not be opening on Thursday 29th October
