Great Comp Garden

Comp Lane
TN15 8QS

Set in the heart of the Garden of England and surrounding a 17th century house, Great Comp Garden is the delightful creation of Roderick and Joy Cameron, their having moved to Great Comp in 1957.

Now extended to over 7 acres the garden has been developed with the aim of providing interest throughout the year from an increasingly varied plant collection. Spring visitors can enjoy one of the best displays of Magnolias, Azaleas, early bulbs and perennials in the region. But it's during the summer months that the garden reaches its zenith with stunning displays of Salvias, Crocosmios, Dahlias, Kniphofias and other exotic plants. Many of these continue well into the autumn.

In 1982 the Camerons set up a registered charitable Trust to assure the future of Great Comp as a garden of the highest quality regularly open to the public. Money from entrance fees and donations goes directly to the trust and pays for the upkeep and development of the garden and its facilities.

William Dyson is the Curator at Great Comp and he also runs his own nursery specialising in Salvias which is situated within the garden. A select range of other choice and uncommon hardy and half-hardy plants are also available from the nursery.
