Col Stephenson R Clarke sponsored many of the Great Plant Hunters’ expeditions from 1893 to 1937 in their collection of shrubs and trees from across the world. He then had them planted at Borde Hill, creating a unique collection of flaura and fauna which continues to bloom with vibrancy year on year.

The Garden has since continued to be planted with passion by four generations of the Stephenson Clarke family.
