The weather has turned slightly cooler, and the trees are beginning to change to autumnal colours, but the parterre's summer display is still looking beautiful so it's a perfect time to come and enjoy the Gardens. Warm yourself with a freshly made hot chocolate from our coffee bar as you enjoy a leisurely walk around.

Seasons in the Garden
This is the month we change over the bedding. We pull out summer plants and plant our bulbs and spring flowering plants. The leaves on all the trees will have changed colour to magnificent golden hues.
November and December:
The garden starts to go into hibernation for the winter. Visit the Winter Garden on the way to Tay Bridge to see the colour of cornus together with a variety of winter flowering shrubs. The variegated hollies and evergreen shrubs round the garden give it depth in the winter. Christmas trees and light sculptures end the year.
January and February:
The house may be closed for the winter but our gardens are still a great place to enjoy beautiful winter walks at the weekends. Enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate as you take advantage of fresh, crisp days in the new year.
We hold some great garden events here at Waddesdon, from hands on activities to talks and presentations. Search our event calendar by putting 'house and garden' as the search term.
