A Garden for All Seasons

From daffodils and tulips adding bright colour pops to the lawn to the deep reds and bronzes of the autumn leaves, the grounds at The Alverton are ever changing. Whatever time of the year you visit be sure to take a moment to explore.

Spring

The bluebells, tulips, rhododendron and daffodils erupt in the flower beds and along the drive with their vibrant colour. The Magnolia blooms, adding a spring to our step. The bursts of colour herald the start of lighter evenings and warmer days. At this time of year the birdsong is full of gusto, especially in the morning when their gentle melodies are most welcome.

 

Summer

As the sun rises the sunny terrace soaks up the warm rays - it stays this way all day making it a little sanctuary where only a crisp white wine or a refreshing cocktail will do. The towering pink foxgloves, with their floral bells, dapple the gardens and the Buddleia attracts fluttering butterflies and busy bumble bees to the gardens.

 

Autumn

Many of the leaves have turned to warm bronzes, golds and reds including the Beeches and Maples. The autumnal breeze knocks the crispy leaves to the ground making it crunchy underfoot. The hydrangeas are still going strong and the acidic soil creates some beautiful blues.

 

Winter

The first of the snowdrops are scattered throughout the grounds and the yellow crocus dot the lawn. The holly bushes are decked with ruby red berries and the festive fir trees come into their own. The mild climate means that you may spot the first of the daffodils and narcissi.
