Three miles east of Worcester surrounded by glorious countryside and deer park lays one of Britain’s best-kept secrets. Spetchley is a garden for all tastes containing one of the biggest private collections of plant varieties outside the major botanical gardens. Spetchley is not a formal paradise of neatly manicured lawns or beds but rather a wondrous display of plants, shrubs and trees woven into a garden of many rooms and vistas. It is certainly an ever changing garden and one undergoing many changes. The Revival Project is in its infancy; a ten year project aimed at reviving Spetchley's wonderful legacy. Please follow us to see how we get on and visit to view this wonderful garden and watch its transformation. The Gardens open from April-October.

Having read such good reviews for these gardens, we were a little disappointed to find them looking rather tired and a little neglected. Although our visit was late in the season, and we weren't expecting to see summer flowering plants at their best, we did...More
