As summer gets underway, visit beautiful Exbury Gardens in the New Forest

And enjoy unlimited visits and lots of added extras, with Friends of Exbury Membership

In the beautiful twilight moment as spring turns to summer and the evenings stretch ever longer, at Exbury Gardens there are camellias with buds still to open, late rhododendrons still doing their thing, plus a host of summer flowering shrubs and perennials just beginning to enjoy their moment in the spotlight.

Following a spectacular spring at Exbury, the later flowering rhododendrons continue to provide colour around the gardens, accompanied by a host of summer flowering shrubs and perennials. The earliest of the hydrangea flowers are emerging, in shades of blue, pink and lime green, along Hydrangea Walk and on the path from Gilbury Lane Bridge to the Five Arrows Gallery. Other areas of interest include the Herbaceous Garden, Centenary Garden and the Iris Garden. On hotter days, recommended are the two river walks where the views can be enjoyed from the comfort of the shade, accompanied by a cool breeze blowing across the river.
