Welcome to the garden at Knowle Hill Farm. The garden, situated 400 feet up on the north downs, has a spectacular view south over the Kentish Weald. It is rich in plants which thrive in warm, dry conditions and is full of interest all year round.
Early spring sees snowdrops, cyclamen, hellebores and spring bulbs. In high summer the garden is full of lavender, roses and agapanthus and late in the year there is a wonderful display of asters, grasses, cosmos and salvias which lasts until the first frosts. The garden is open under the National Gardens Scheme and for private parties by appointment.
