Compton Elms

Maidenhead

A delightful spring garden set in a sunken woodland, lovingly recovered from clay pit workings. The atmospheric garden is filled with snowdrops, primroses, hellebores and fritillaria, interspersed with anemone and narcissi under a canopy of ash and beech.

    The garden is best visited in spring, when the bulbs in the woodland garden emerge. Snowdrops arrive in February, then primroses and sweet smelling daphne, with March and April bringing narcissi, anemone, hellebores and fritillaria.

    The rest of the garden is made up of a collection of rooms, framed by yew and box hedging. There is a small kitchen and cutting garden, bordered by fruit trees. Around the pool, olives have been underplanted with hummocks of lavender and santolina to create a mediterranean feel. The back borders, full of cottage garden plants are set off by the fantastic view across farmlands to Knowl Hill
