This is not a big garden but should be accessible for all unless the ground is very wet and boggy. It has many areas to inspire your own plot or just gorgeous plants and garden birds to enjoy. So peaceful. The restaurant serves a good...More

Huge choice of plants, shrubs, trees and everything else for your garden. Prices a tad on the high side although the quality of the produce was there. On site restaurant and coffee shop too.

Small nursery which hides some interesting gardens- lots of variety and gives you plenty of ideas to use at home. Excellent café for just a coffee or lunch- seemed very popular. Well worth a visit.

We are going around gardens using our 2 for 1 vouchers. The garden at Merriments is one of the nicest, most interesting and colourful we have seen. Shame though about the tea room which is very over priced - over £7 for a jacket potato.

We first visited the garden when it had just been started very many years ago. Then it was a rather muddy expanse but what an astounding development since. The plantings have been really thought out well, demonstrating many different gardening styles and effects. Given the...More
