Enjoy peace and tranquility

Arboretum

This Arboretum was planted in 1982 after first removing the remains of a fir plantation and then growing a season of potatoes to clean the soil. The trees and a few rhododendrons around the perimeter are now beginning to mature. This is a very restful place and visitors love to walk through and sit on the conveniently situated seats to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area.
Don’t miss:
  • Among the firs there is a beautifully shaped Abies Koreana with its striking blue cones.
  • Bark spotting – the Prunus Serrula with its wonderful red bark set against the cream bark of Betula Costata and the white bark of Betula Jacquemontii.
  • Autumn scent – A ring of several Clerodendrum Trichotomum with their powerful scent fill the air in Autumn, and the glorious colour of the acers and parrotia go out in a blaze at the end of the season.
 
Coronavirus update:

At Pinetum Gardens our Main concern has always been the safety, health and wellbeing of our staff and guests – the coronavirus pandemic means this has never been more important. While we had hoped to be able to continue access to our gardens and outdoor spaces, the latest Government advice means that this has become increasingly difficult to achieve. We are sure that you will understand why we must close in these unprecedented times. We look forward to welcoming visitors again when we can safely re-open.
