Description

The garden of elegant Frogmore House, hidden away in Windsor Great Park within walking distance of the castle, has been a favourite retreat for successive queens from George III’s wife, Queen Charlotte, who laid out the present garden, to Queen Victoria who built the royal mausoleum in the garden. Although it is no longer an occupied royal residence, Frogmore House and Garden is frequently used by the Royal Family for private entertaining. As well as the elegant garden landscape there are many fine trees planted to mark royal occasions. The garden also has a unique place in the story of the National Garden Scheme, having opened for the scheme since 1946 as part of the annual charity garden open days that provide rare public access to this otherwise private royal garden.

National Garden Scheme CEO George Plumptre, who has written a book on the Royal Gardens will introduce Frogmore’s history, John Anderson, Keeper of the Gardens at Windsor Great Park will discuss the garden and Niel Dodds, head gardener, will talk about looking after the garden today.
