The Nymphaeum was part of a scheme to mark Sir Roy’s 80th birthday. To create this new tableau a yew hedge that he had waited forty years to mature was cut down! This is like a tableau out of an Italian Renaissance villa garden lifted into Hereford.
Our small shop carries a range of items exclusive to the gardens, also a range of plants grown in the garden is for sale.
In 2018 two significant additions were made to the Orchard, one of which were the two mosaics at the cross sections in the paths, more spectacularly, the Belvedere built in the classical style with a flight of steps leading up to a viewing pavilion from which to look down on the garden.
