Stockwood Discovery Centre Gardens

Stockwood Discovery Centre Gardens

The Period Gardens at Stockwood Discovery Centre are in the original walled gardens.

Stockwood Discovery Centre gardens are inspired by nine centuries of gardening history. A paradise for garden enthusiasts, Stockwood Discovery Centre is one of the few places in the country where the work of acclaimed artist Ian Hamilton Finlay can be seen on permanent display. His 'Improvement Garden' is a classical garden in which the sculptures are an integral part of the landscape. Once part of the original Stockwood House walled areas, the period gardens reflect the changing styles of gardening in this country. New areas include a contemplative sensory garden, a colourful world garden, and a medicinal garden highlighting the usefulness of plants - designed with environmentally green and sustainable principles in mind.
