The Winter Garden at Cambridge Botanical Gardens is designed as a dell and surrounded by hedges. Shielded from the noise of traffic, it is veritable sense sensation.


Chimonanthus praecox ‘Grandiflorus’

A brilliant green grass-edged path winds through the shallow valley which was designed so that sunlight illuminates some features and backlights others.


Star of the show (IMHO) currently is Hamamelis × intermedia ‘Jelena’


The plan is available as a PDF, as is the planting List
