A garden for all seasons in the heart of the Welsh Marches


Welcome to Hergest Croft Gardens

We are now closed for the season, re-opening for weekends in March on Saturday 6 March 2021, then daily from Saturday 27 March.  

However, a season ticket gives admission to the gardens every day of the year; they cost £27.00 each and can be purchased through the Estate Office on 01544 230160 

We are also open by appointment for PLANT SALES - please call Steve on 07968 435627 for a wide range of herbaceous plants, trees and shrubs.                          JUST ARRIVED:  A lovely collection of Hellebores, including Joie de Vivre Victoria, Ice Pink Frost and Ice n' Roses Red, in 2 and 4.5 litre pots.  These hardy and undemanding winter flowering plants make wonderful presents ...

Dogs on leads are welcome.

Please would all our visitors ensure that they keep strictly to social distancing and comply with other government guidelines; many thanks.

PLEASE NOTE - with the recent rain, some areas of the gardens have become muddy and a bit slippery, so if you are a visiting season ticket holder, please   take care!

The autumn colour is wonderful this year - just look at this glorious photo ...

Our Autumn Plant Fair on Sunday, 11 October was a huge success; we had a record number of visitors, very happy plant buyers and sellers - and the sun shone.  Huge thanks to everyone who supported this, we loved seeing you all.

PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION - information and rules on the News page.  Closing date 30 September 2021.

Set in the heart of the Welsh Marches, this 70 acre garden has stunning views towards the Black Mountains. Created over 120 years by four generations of the Banks family, Hergest Croft has a unique collection of over 5,000 rare plants, trees and shrubs as well as more than 90 'Champion' trees. There are gorgeous flower borders, an old fashioned Kitchen Garden, Azalea Garden, Maple Grove, and Park Wood. Spectacular spring and autumn colour make this a garden for all seasons.
