Admire the beauty of the Rose Garden at its peak; a real feast for the senses with 750 David Austin rose plants and 100 varieties filling the air with a glorious fragrance.

The Rose Garden, designed by Robin Williams and planted in 1996, contains the most valued and popular roses developed by David Austin, including Gertrude Jekyll, Winchester Cathedral and Graham Thomas. It also contains the most popular roses sold in the last 12 months in the UK including Olivia Rose Austin, Lady Emma Hamilton and Darcy Bussell.

Head Gardener, Andy Stevens, says “Jay Robin’s Rose Garden is undoubtedly the main highlight of the summer displays, with the sight and fragrance of over 750 David Austin roses being something to behold.”

During Rose Celebration Weeks, groups (15+ people) are invited to book a weekday guided tour of the principal ground floor rooms of the Elizabethan Mansion House, decorated especially with roses. Contact our Group Bookings Manager on 01444 450326 for details.

Nature for Wellbeing: Light & Dark – Sleep Improvement Workshop
Aug 13 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Light & Dark Workshop – how time spent outdoors improves sleep

Why do we go to sleep late and struggle to get up on time? Before we used artificial lights, our sleep cycles were guided by the light of the sun.

During this 2 hour workshop, you will be able to experience the tranquillity of a summer’s evening at Borde Hill during a fun and relaxing walk through the Garden.

You will also discover the benefits of natural light for our circadian rhythms and learn how to maximise your sensory experience of natural light to help you reset your body clock and permanently improve your sleep patterns.

The workshop is delivered by a qualified tutor from GardenLife Lab and includes both theory and practical elements. It will take place in the Garden Marquee and outside in the Garden. Suitable for beginners.

GardenLife Lab offers a range of courses and workshops with three core messages: Garden Biodiversity, Gardens & Wellbeing, and Emerging Scientists. Their vision is to encourage engagement with gardens to support wildlife conservation, improve health and wellbeing, and to inspire the next generation of scientists.
