Hergest Croft Gardens

Magnificent trees lend such great distinction to a landscape and, thanks to five generations of the Banks family, the gardens at Hergest Croft are an incomparable treasure trove of rare trees and shrubs planted since Victorian times.

It was during the early 1900s when the plant-hunter, Ernest Wilson, brought many new plants back from China that the garden was started by the grandfather of the present owners, Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks CBE, who have cared for the 70-acre garden and arboretum since 1988. Many of these introductions have since grown into towering rhododendrons and exotic trees that fill the secluded woodland valleys, creating scenes that are, says Lawrence, more reminiscent of the Himalayas than the Welsh Marches.
