#HampshireGardens www.gardensinhampshire.co.uk A collaborative publication by The Marketing Collective


Welcome Hampshire is a garden-lovers destination where there are associations with some of the great names in gardening history; from the Rothschilds’ azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias at Exbury Gardens in the New Forest, the prized collections of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens near Romsey, the National Collection of old fashioned roses at Mottisfont to Walled Gardens and stunning 16th, 17th and 18th century gardens. Discover borders bursting with spring bulbs, herbaceous summer planting, rich autumn shrubberies and unique winter gardens. There are gardens for every season – so come and explore www.gardensinhampshire.co.uk “It is a delight to live in a county that has such a rich diversity of gardens within its boundaries. The Downs, the coast and sheltered valleys on soil that varies tremendously offers any gardener rich pickings when its comes to floral spectacle. As a Hampshire resident of more than 30 years’ standing there is still lots to see”.
