Join our knowledgeable gardening team for a tour of our sub-tropical garden

Thursdays in May

Discover the species in our sub-tropical garden and uncover the stories that make it unique

For many of our visitors it is astonishing that a garden exists here, but despite the gales and salty winds, the Gulf Stream tempers the climate so that frosts are a rarity and the rock acts as a gigantic radiator – absorbing heat by day and releasing it at night, creating a microclimate in which all sorts of unlikely plants flourish.

Discover the species and uncover the stories that make our garden unique on a specialised garden tour with one of the four strong gardening team on the island. Enjoy an informative walk around the garden and learn about the Victorian walled garden, the sub-tropical plants, and the vertical gardening that the team undertakes to maintain the cliff garden.
