Lyndalls and The Laskett Garden Opening Guided Tour with Lunch

Date: Friday 23 February 2024

Friday 23rd February 2024 from 11am until 4:30pm at Lyndalls and The Laskett Garden Much Birch, Hereford, Herefordshire HR2 8HZ, and Sollers Hope, Hereford, Herefordshire HR1 4RL. This event starts at Lyndalls, Sollers Hope, the private residence of Stuart Donachie and Chris Carter. After refreshments upon arrival, guests will have a guided tour by Stuart of this beautiful private garden set in seven acres within a hidden Herefordshire Valley in the Woolhope Dome. The gardens were created from scratch by the current owners over the past 23 years with an overall informal design with emphasis on natural contours and forms. Large herbaceous borders (created with the help of the local farmer’s tractor), wooded areas, ponds and an alpine house provide numerous habitats for a large collection of unusual and rare plants. A chance meeting with a noted galanthophile began an obsession with snowdrops that has resulted in a collection of over 600 varieties which should be reaching peak flowering. The Laskett’s collection of snowdrops was originally created by Sir Roy Strong’s late wife Julia Trevelyan Oman. Vastly expanded and naturalised, the collection is enchanting. The snowdrops bring a sense of purity and tranquillity to the garden at this time of year. The formal gardens and topiary really show well. The snowdrop display in the colonnade court adds an extra dimension to this unique experience. Lunch will be served in The Laskett house. For more information and to book tickets, please click here.
