Knoll Gardens Houses
Stapehill Road, Hampreston, Dorset
Planting of the gardens began a little over thirty years ago with a collection of rhododendrons and Australasian plants. It was not long before the 'Wimborne Botanic', as the garden was originally known, had a wide collection of trees and plants from around the world, and was featured on BBC TV's 'Gardener's World'.
With its mature framework of trees and shrubs there is much of interest in the garden at any season. The eucalyptus trees - such a feature of the garden all summer - continue to impress during the winter with further changes in their bark colourings.
The Dorset Wildlife Trust has been working along side Knoll Gardens to find ways in which horticulture and wildlife can thrive side by side. The Living Gardens Project includes promoting the wildlife value of private gardens.
