The Dorothy Clive Garden, Gardens Market Drayton, Shropshire - England where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Willoughbridge Market Drayton Shropshire England
Intimacy and that quintessentially English gardening tradition of informality, epitomise the ‘essence’ of The Dorothy Clive Garden. This jewel of horticulture, nestling between the boundaries of Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire, is a garden that must be seen if you have a love of plants and a sense of romance. Originally conceived by one man’s immense love for his wife, the gardens now offer a wonderfully mature setting for all visitors to relax, stroll around and draw inspiration from the creative blend of plants imaginatively used everywhere. The gardens have something special to offer throughout the growing season. In early spring blankets of bulbs emerge around the garden and Camellia Walk bursts into life. As this begins to fade a wonderful woodland spectacle erupts focusing on Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Bluebells. Continuous with and following on from this, early summer heralds successive waves of herbaceous perennials to stimulate the senses. With high summer and early autumn repeat flowering bedding schemes and various shrubs perpetuate horticultural interest right the way through to the closed season.
