Herald the start of our new season by joining camellia enthusiast, Nick Schroder, on a guided tour of the camellia collection at Borde Hill Garden.

Trace the history of these wonderful plants, brought to Europe across the high seas from China by the tea merchants of the 18th and early 19th Centuries. Discover how Colonel Stephenson R. Clarke of Borde Hill sponsored the plant hunters, and how he raised the famous Camellia x williamsii ‘Donation’ here in the 1930’s. The actual plants, still thriving today, will bring the tour to life as you explore this historic garden.

CamelliasTours available: 11am and 3pm

Tickets: £10 per person, including Garden entry (£5 for Friends of Borde Hill)
