Serge Hill, Barn Garden and Plant Library Visit, Hertfordshire

Thursday 25 July 2024

We are delighted to offer a second MPG visit to the gardens of the Stuart-Smith family – home of the landscape designer Tom Stuart-Smith, his wife Sue and sister Kate. Since our last visit in 2018, Tom and Sue have set up the Serge Hill Project for Gardening, Creativity and Health, and significantly developed the gardens. A highlight will be the new Plant Library which serves as a community or catalogue of over 1500 plants that can be walked through and observed from all angles.

Our visit will include time in the Barn Garden, Plant Library and the garden of Serge Hill. The day will start at 10.30am, with an introduction to the gardens followed by approximately two hours to explore the Barn Garden and Plant Library and an hour for Serge Hill.

Tea, coffee and cake will be served part-way through our visit. However, please plan for lunch after you depart the gardens as there are no additional catering options available and the gardens are not able to accommodate picnics. The Rose and Crown pub in Kings Langsley is a 10 minute drive away is the suggested venue for those who wish to go for a pub lunch after our garden visit.

The cost for the day is £63.
