Originally Designed by Colonel Clive for the love of his wife, The Dorothy Clive Garden was set up as a charitable garden trust, with the objectives of maintaining, enhancing and developing a garden inspired by the memory of the late Dorothy Clive. And also to be used for the enjoyment and benefit of the public and to support horticultural education for the continuing benefit of both students and the general public.
The garden hosts a range of horticulturally inspired events throughout the open season, including the twice yearly Plant Hunters’ Fair and the Annual Chilli Festival. There are also special events for children including garden trails, giant games and summer picnics.
