This page is about Furzey Gardens in Lyndhurst, Hampshire
This lovely informal garden established in 1922 is famous for its year round beauty.
There is plenty of seating to enjoy the shrubs and trees at all times of the year.
There are collections of Azaleas and Rhododendrons, an unsual Bottle brush tree and Flaming Chilean fire trees. Traditional planting of vegetables and flowers can be seen in the newly restored cottage garden.
The orchard has been developed growing various old varities of fruits. You can wonder round the cottage and imagine life with 13 children in a small space!
The cottage now restored, houses an exhibition of work for students from the Minstead Trainning Project. This project offers trainning in life and social skills for youngsters with learning disabilites. Many of them help with the maintenance of the gardens.
