Gloucestershire gardens in July

With summer in full swing, there’s plenty of opportunities to visit gardens in Gloucestershire throughout the month of July…

11 Hatherley Court Road, Cheltenham

A large urban garden developed over the last 25 yrs by the current owners. Their vision is to create an informal nature lovers’ garden where there is tranquillity away from the town and a time for mental refreshment. The space consists of paths, herbaceous border, pond, wildflower spread, silver birch copse and lush green vegetation of the dry river bed. Opens Sunday 14th July, pre-booking essential.

Trench Hill, Sheepscombe

Approx 3 acres set in a small woodland with panoramic views. Variety of herbaceous and mixed borders, rose garden, extensive vegetable plots, wildflower areas, woodland walk, two small ponds, waterfall and larger conservation pond. Interesting wooden sculptures, many within the garden. Opens Sunday 14th July.

The Stables, Cheltenham

The garden extends to 0.6 acre on the original stables site and is surrounded by fields. Inspired by the work of Piet Oudolf, the garden consists of large perennial beds which merge into the surrounding landscape. The garden has been developed over the last 3 yrs from a bare site and inc a fully grown native hedge which separates the garden from the newly planted 1 acre wildflower meadow. Opens Tuesday 23rd July.

1 Cobden Villas, Nailsworth

Set into a hillside this organic and wildlife friendly garden is divided into distinct areas. A small mixed woodland area provides separation from the adjacent lane with underplanting of shade loving native and unusual plants. Terraced beds and borders adopt cottage garden planting ethos with extensive ground cover and shrubs. A rill and small pond provides a home for frogs and dragonflies. Opens Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July.
