The visionary design influences of Mulberry founder Roger Saul can now be seen coming to fruition at his Kilver Court gardens in Somerset. His unique planting schemes using colour and texture are evident in his newly redesigned 100m colourist herbaceous border, formal parterre and subtropical island.

The visionary design influences of Mulberry founder Roger Saul can now be seen coming to fruition at his Kilver Court gardens in Somerset. His unique planting schemes using colour and texture are evident in his newly redesigned 100m colourist herbaceous border, formal parterre and subtropical island. This eclectic garden is also home to one of the largest sculptures in the world, a breath-taking 15-metre-high Victorian viaduct.

In the 100m herbaceous border the foliage is the predominant feature rather than the bloom with hundreds of interesting plant varieties featuring tropical Euphorbia Pasteurii, Mediterranean Geranium Maderense and Salvia Leucantha.

Our retro ‘60s rockery comes into its own in the Winter months with colourful conifers and Asian acers in hues of burgundy, gold and copper. A tranquil waterfall runs through its centre adding a sense of peace and calm.

Inspired by the gardens at the Palace des Invalides in Paris, the formal parterre of box and yew hedging creates an elegant symmetry in the gardens. In contrast to this is a woodland stumpery filled with ferns and surrounded by bluebells, ramsons and snowdrops in the Spring.

Explore the garden nursery which is a treasure trove of garden gifts, plants and tools.

Review of Kilver Court Gardens

Posted on by Susan WCustomer visited Dec 2016

Fabulous garden in such a small area. The viaduct is amazing and adds a spectacular backdrop to the garden. The plants are colour and well thought out for the environment. Visited in early spring and late summer and both occasions really enjoyed a gentle amble around the tranquil haven that is Kilver Court Gardens.

A lovely little garden with the viaduct as a backdrop. Lots of water features and beautiful plants. Plenty of seats to stop and spend time enjoying the atmosphere. If you like shopping there is also a number of designer shops, cafe and plants for sale. Your entry is for the day and you can go back in again.

A photography group from the Norton Radstock U3A visited Kilver Court Gardens today, and although the weather was less than springlike, the gardens were beautiful and made our trip very worthwhile. Of course we are a social group as well, and we all warmed up in the Harlequin Cafe on site with tea and cake.

The garden has rockeries, a stream and a lake, and the backdrop of the disused viaduct which used to carry the Somerset and Dorset Railway. All of the garden is very well kept, and part of it is being replanted and planted.

Lovely garden to lie out in on hot summer days with lovely small plant shop and great cafe. Very fond memories of this place. Take a picnic and leave your cares behind. You won't be disappointed.

These gardens are very well maintained and extremely pretty. The viaduct lends to the setting. This is what I would class as a hidden gem. Well worth a visit. Entrance fee is £5 for adults.

Fabulous gardens with a little bit of everything; water, lawns, woodland, borders and more against a viaduct backdrop. The late summer flowering borders were stunning with bright vivacious colours. The gardens were extremely well looked after and would like to congratulate the gardeners. Well worth a visit; refreshments available near the entrance.

Designed for the former workers this garden is beautiful - restful and offering a range of planting styles, wooded, with a lake on one side, formal herbaceous planting and a rockery on the other. It's beautiful, a tranquil refuge.

Posted on by Stephen BCustomer visited Oct 2017

What lovely gardens! Loads of colour, even in mid October. This includes many flowers and plants as well as trees. Some of the paths are a little uneven, a wheelchair / pram might be difficult, but you can walk on the grass too. Helpful and friendly gardener, to help identify plants. Interesting shop and plant sales. Plenty of seats around the garden

We went to visit Kilver Court gardens over the last weekend, was pleasantly surprised it was a calm attractive area where I would imagine on a calm warm day would present a beautiful location to sit, relax and enjoy the view. If I was in the area again I would not hesitate to go to and pay the entrance fee again. Very nice garden, really enjoyed our walk there.
