LEA GARDENS IS NOW CLOSED UNTIL 1ST MARCH 2017 (OTHER THAN FOR PLANT SALES, WHICH CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR). OUR IN-SEASON OPENING HOURS ARE 10.00 AM TO 5.00 PM

Lea Gardens is a unique collection of highly acclaimed rhododendrons, azaleas kalmias and other plants collected from the far corners of the world.

The Gardens are sited on the remains of a medieval millstone quarry and cover an area of approximately 4 acres (1.6ha) on a wooded hillside. The excellent rock Garden contain a huge variety of alpines with acers, dwarf conifers, heathers and spring bulbs.

Bird life has been encouraged in quiet woodland walks below the main gardens. This area, planted with ornamental trees and specie rhododendrons, contains many assorted bird-boxes donated by friends of Lea Gardens. The colours, scents and natural bird life can best be appreciated on a quiet weekday.
