Emmets

 

Emmets

5-acre hillside garden, with the highest tree top in Ken. noted for its fine collection of rare trees and flowering shrubs. The garden is particularly fine in spring, while a rose garden, rock garden and extensive planting of acers for autumn colour extend the interest throughout the season. National Trust. Interesting hillside garden with year-round features. Influenced by William Robinson, this delightful plantsman's garden was laid out in the late 19th century, with many exotic and rare trees and shrubs from across the world. There are glorious shows of spring flowers and shrubs, a rose garden and rock garden. Emmetts is equally attractive for its spectacular views at all times and its autumn colours.
