Great Comp Garden: It is a peaceful haven - largely informal - with meandering paths through thousands of colourful shrubs and choice perennial plants.

To give you a taste of what is to be found, there are at least 70 Magnolias in 30 or so varieties, including a magnificent Magnolia veitchii which towers some 50' over surrounding plants. It often has in excess of 2000 blooms and is probably one of the best specimens in the country.
