The gardens and parkland that you see today at Burghley were largely designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th century. Today, sweeping vistas down to the spires of Stamford with the backdrop of the House create the perfect canvas for open air classical concerts, wedding receptions, events or just a quiet stroll with the dog. Visitor facilities include the Orangery Restaurant, Gift Shop, Gardens of Surprise and beautiful walks around the historic parkland laid out by Capability Brown and still occupied by a herd of fallow deer.
We will be concentrating on HT’S, Floribunda’s and climbers on tripods but we can also look at Shrub roses, 12 month calendar of maintenance, spraying, planting and our organic approach, then a tour at the end of the day around the gardens.
The cost of this PSD is £25. Please wear practical clothing, boots, gloves and bring secateurs (if possible). Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring a packed lunch.
