There are many beautiful gardens to visit in the Chelmsford area, as plants benefit from the warm temperatures and relatively dry conditions experienced here compared to much of the rest of the UK.
Perhaps the most famous garden to visit here is RHS Hyde Hall Garden near Writtle, which is perhaps one of the most spectacular gardens in the South East. It is surrounded by hills and has fantastic panoramic views. It is set on 360 acres and is laid out in several different gardens. The Hilltop Garden has beautiful ponds, shrub borders and flower beds laid out in a rainbow of colours. The Dry Garden features plants that can tolerate drought, making use of the dry Chelmsford climate. This includes Mediterranean plants, plus golden euphorbia, poppies and alliums in spring and bright purple verbena in summer.
In complete contrast, the Robinson and Woodland Gardens have a contemporary design and contain many rare plants, including species of rhododendron, camellia and magnolia. An event not to be missed is the Hyde Hall Flower Show from 31 July to 3 August 2014 where there will be many horticulture experts giving talks and advice and when the gardens will be in full bloom.
East of Chelmsford, near Maldon, is Beeleigh Abbey Garden, which is open on Fridays from April to September each year. It has a stunning floral display across its three acres; in particular the carpets of bluebells are not to be missed in spring. There is a cottage garden and a rose garden, a wildflower meadow and herbaceous borders running for 85 yards. The setting is overlooked by the 17th century house built on the site of a 12th century abbey. The River Chelmer runs along the northern end.
Wickham Place Farm in Witham has a 2 acre walled garden first established in 1706. It features roses, climbers, shrubs and perennials and has one of the longest wisterias in the country along a 250 ft wall. It opens under the National Garden Scheme on a few selected dates.
The National Garden Scheme Open Days are great opportunities to see private gardens in the Chelmsford area, that are not normally open to the public. These take place on selected dates in June and July, for example the Canewdon Open Garden Day is on 28th June, the Felsted Open Garden Day on 25th and 26th June and the Galleywood Open Garden Day on 6th July.
