Margery Fish’s iconic cottage garden at East Lambrook Manor
“In the development of gardening in the second half of the twentieth century no garden has yet had greater effect.” John Sales, National Trust
East Lambrook Manor Gardens is the iconic and quintessentially English cottage garden created by the celebrated 20th-century plantswoman and gardening writer Margery Fish. It was here that she developed her own style of gardening, combining old-fashioned and contemporary plants in a relaxed and informal manner to create a garden of immense beauty and charm.
The English Heritage Grade 1 listed garden is characterised by many winding paths through abundant borders and is renowned as the premier example of the English cottage garden style. It has noted collections of snowdrops, hellebores and hardy geraniums and there is an excellent specialist hardy plant nursery in the garden.
The garden is open from 1st February to 31st October and is now closed for the winter.
We open again on 1st February 2019 for the
East Lambrook Manor Gardens Festival of Snowdrops.

(The garden is closed on all Mondays except Bank Holiday Mondays.)
