Hill Close

The restored gardens at Hill Close, Warwick, offer an extremely rare opportunity to visit sixteen hedged Victorian detached gardens, reconstructed to capture the planting and personality of their original owners.

The plots are very varied and individual, as would have been the case more than a hundred years ago. Generally there is a mixture of flowers, fruit – such as apples, pears, plums and soft fruit – a grassed area and a wide
range of vegetables. Many of these are old varieties seldom seen nowadays.

The new Victorian-styled glass house is used to raise plants for the garden and for selling in the nursery. In the summer there is a display of exotic plants such as hydichiums, eucomis, scented geraniums and heliotropes. An auricula theatre was erected in 2009 to display these lovely plants. It is then used to display other unusual plants throughout the year.
