Standing on an acre of land, the oldest of Chelsea’s nurseries occupies a site used for hundreds of years as a thriving garden, says Dorothy. “Today it offers a calm and slightly quirky green oasis at the end of the bustling King’s Road in London. Pick your way through the eclectic mix of plants and pots artfully arranged around the meandering pathways, making it more like a visit to a secret garden than a walk through a garden centre. Indoor and outdoor plants fight for space with garden statuary, planters, benches and even the odd gazebo.”

Expansive is the feeling you get from Hyde Hall from the moment you pull up in the newly landscaped car park, says Dorothy. Set atop a hill, the house and gardens are very exposed and the planting is carefully selected to ensure that the “right plant right place” principles are applied and the plants thrive. Using this experience, the nursery is stocked with an excellent selection of high-quality plants suitable for drier, poorer soils. “Top it all with a delicious light lunch or tea in the tea garden and make it a day out.”
