More about Spinners Garden

Spinners is a peaceful woodland garden overlooking the Lymington valley with a reputation for rare and unusual plants built up over the last fifty years.

In the upper woodland garden the trees and shrubs have been selected to give interest for long periods by concentrating on foliage and habit not just flowers. In the spring the rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias are in bloom but the real stars are at your feet. The underplanting forms a tapestry of colour woven from large ranges of trilliums, erythroniums, pulmonarias, shortias, wood anemones and epimediums.

The lower garden walk takes you past the new pond and into a small arboretum, with many new specimens planted, and then leads back through the nursery to the cabin.
