Furzey Gardens

School Lane
SO43 7GL

These informal gardens were first planted in 1922 and are renowned for their all year round beauty.

In the spring, banks of Azaleas and Rhododendrons dazzle with colour and exotic Chilean fire trees light up the gardens. Secret paths lead past drifts of primulas to quiet scented glades, while viewing areas provide outlooks over the New Forest to the Isle of Wight. Flowering trees and shrubs continue the interest through the summer with a blaze of Autumn display at the end of the season.

In recent years students from the Minstead Training Project have been involved in some extensive regeneration and replanting and hundreds of new plants have been added to the collection. New work continues but always to enhance the garden's unique natural ambience. Furzey will always be a special place for anybody who loves peace and plants.

The newly restored thatched Craft Gallery should not to be missed, a good choice of quality crafts is displayed in the gallery. You can relax with a coffee and cake on the New Terrace, or in the comfortable sofas in the Loft.

The play area has something for everyone. Come and see the African style round houses, the tree house, the swings and the boat and picnic area. The crawl tunnel is a special favorite amongs the little ones.
