Minterne - Jan 24

The Himalayan Gardens at Minterne House, Minterne Magna in the Cerne Valley, Dorset. .

20 acres of wild woodland gardens, noted for the historic collection of Rhododendrons, Azaleas & Magnolias.

 

Between 1850 and 1947, Victorian plant hunters voyaged across the world, sponsored by amateur garden enthusiasts and brought countless new exotic species to English gardens; the seeds were shared around the sponsors who propagated this as a basis for exotic subtropical shrub gardens. Minterne Gardens were at the forefront of planting these newly introduced species.
