Mediterranean Garden

Escape to the Mediterranean

Relax and embrace the delights of a Mediterranean dream.

Bicton’s sandy and free draining soil complements most Mediterranean plants desires to not sit in any water sodden soil. Resting on a south facing slope the Mediterranean garden offers a captivating escape that transports visitors to the sun-kissed shores of southern Europe. This haven of tranquillity, meticulously cared for, seamlessly blends the vibrant colours and fragrances of the Mediterranean with the gentle grace of the UK’s natural beauty.

As the sun filters through the leaves of mature olive trees, casting a dappled glow on terracotta pots, the air becomes infused with the heady scent of lavender and rosemary. Vivid bursts of echiums and agapanthus,  add a splash of brilliant hues, creating a tapestry of pinks, purples, blues and whites

Gravel pathways wind through beds of rare and beautiful shrubs, providing a delightful journey of discovery around every corner. Secluded seating areas, adorned with wrought-iron furniture and bright blue pagodas just like that of the Mediterranean sea, beckon visitors to relax.

Important work continues to be done in the Mediterranean Garden experimenting with plants that were previously thought not to be able survive the UK’s weather. However, with climate change contributing to increasing temperatures and less rainfall our climate is more like the Mediterranean than ever before.
