Our biggest garden

The Pinetum

Discover over 80 different conifers in the 4 acre Pinetum. Specially planted in the shape of an amphitheatre with the largest trees on the perimeter and the lowest in the entrance giving an awesome sight of the variety of trees.

The largest of the trees will ultimately grow to 200-300ft. in height – the Giant Redwood from America being one of the largest. Several of the very unusual trees have been grown here in the nursery from seed obtained through plant hunting expeditions.

History:
  • The Pinetum was planted in 1993 in 4 acres of land. All were given plenty of room to mature and it was thought 40ft. centres would be adequate.
  • Every tree was given a mulch mat around it to save the stress of competing with the grass up to its neck and also help to preserve moisture in the early stages of growth. These mats gradually break up by the time the trees have matured sufficiently and no longer need protection.
