Kelmarsh, England United Kingdom
With over 100 varieties planted throughout the unique heart of the Kelmarsh gardens!
Celebrate the late summer season with spectacular colours when this popular event returns to the Northamptonshire country house this year. In recognition of the impressive collection of dahlias at Kelmarsh Hall, a programme of specially-themed activities.
The historic walled garden is home to a wonderful, varied display of dahlias, with over 100 varieties planted throughout the unique heart of the Kelmarsh gardens. There will be garden tours led by our Craft Gardener, flower arranging demonstrations and a chutney tasting to enjoy the produce from our vegetable garden!
For those wishing to find out more about how to grow and care for these magnificent flowers, there will be special dahlia clinic so that you too can enjoy a vibrant display in your own garden.
In addition to exploring our spectacular dahlia flowerbeds and all these events, our beautiful Grade I listed Hall will be open for visitors to view at their leisure from 11pm to 4pm. Visitors will be able to learn about Nancy Lancaster, whose ‘shabby chic’ design vision is still felt throughout the hall and gardens, by exploring the rooms she decorated and listening to a talk on her influence in the gardens.
