Our tea rooms and toilets are shut from 1 November to 18 February, but we are open every day for garden-only visits – there is no need to book.

Furzey Gardens is full of secrets - even we are su Furzey Gardens is full of secrets - even we are surprised sometimes! 

Look what our gardening team found last week whilst making sure the Gunnera manicata are prepared for the winter weather. It seems some fairies have moved onto the island on the lake and have even built their own jetty!

We hope they stay safe in the wind and the rain this weekend! Don't forget the gardens will not be open Saturday 27 November due to the weather warning in place.

Visit furzey-gardens.org for winter opening information.

Low price, quality plants nurtured and raised in our onsite nursery by people with learning disabilities. 

Buying plants from Furzey Gardens is different to most gardens you will visit. Every time you purchase one of our plants you are supporting people to continue learning skills that help them live happier and healthier lives. 

Happy gardening!
