Hergest Croft Gardens is the creation of five generations of the Banks family, all of whom have been passionate gardeners and distinguished dendrologists. It comprises 'the most extensive arboretum in Britain' with over ninety Champion Trees. Set in seventy acres, the walk will include the Gardens, the Park and the medieval Park Wood, in which the landscape conjures up a Himalayan valley but with many more varieties of rhododendrons of immense size. Homemade lunches and teas are available in the tea room. Stout shoes and rainwear required. Elizabeth Banks, President Emeritus of the RHS will lead the walk and Rowan Griffiths, the gardener responsible for cataloguing the collection will assist.
