Pershore Perennial Garden

Only a mile from Pershore, this 70 foot diameter garden enclosed by yew hedges is planted almost entirely with herbaceous perennials. The soil is deep alluvial loam with some gravel and is very fertile. Different parts of the garden are designed to show varying styles of planting, much of which has been rearranged or changed recently, to include both unusual plants and well-known favourites.

The garden is open at virtually all times; there is no admission charge.

Directions: The garden is in the grounds of Pershore College, about a mile east of Pershore on the B4084. The garden is behind the glasshouses that lie behind the college's Plant Centre. Parking, including disabled spaces, is available near the Plant Centre. To get to the garden from that car park, take the path to the left of the Learning Resource Centre, the single storey glass/wood building. At the end of the path turn right, pass the main entrance to the Resource Centre and then continue straight ahead through a gate along the narrower track. Go through the brown wooden gate on the left opposite a new glasshouse. The garden is through the small white pavilion, the Octagon.
