Sir Harold Hillier Gardens - 1 hour from Chewton Glen - Situated three miles north-east of the historic market town of Romsey in the county of Hampshire, southern England, the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens (formerly known as the Hillier Arboretum) are named in memory of their founder, the late Sir Harold Hillier (1905-1985), a member of the nursery family. Visitors to the Gardens will find something to interest them throughout the year. Frosty days of January, with the perfume of the witch hazels' strange spidery flowers filtering through the Gardens, gradually change to the flamboyant blooms of the spring flowering camellias, magnolias, rhododendrons and azaleas. These are followed by the heady scents of summer's flowering shrubs and herbaceous plants before the autumn season of fiery hues.
