Nurseries & Gardens
Where can I see good clematis growing?
To see clematis growing in the garden setting is very valuable for the gardener to give you ideas about how and where to place then and the different ways they can be used. So here are some of the best gardens to visit that have a good number of clematis plants growing in them and where they are grown well.
Before travelling any distance please check with the gardens owners regarding visiting times and seasons as they will vary from venue to venue.

Hindringham Hall, Blacksmiths Lane, Hindringham, Norfolk
Hindringham Hall is the most delicious little moated manor house straight out of a story book with its medieval moat and fishponds, working walled vegetable garden, formal and informal borders wrapped around a brick and flint Tudor Hall. The beautiful gardens are open to the public in the summer on Wednesdays and Sundays. For details, visit our Hindringham Hall Gardens page.
The gardens have been planted with a great abundance of Thorncroft Clematis and the way they have been used to great effect will wow the gardener and feed the mind with new ways to use them at home.

East Ruston Old Vicarage, East Ruston, Norfolk
A stunning 32 acre garden crammed with rare and interesting plants, many of which are on offer from the on-site plant centre. East Ruston now has 23 different 'gardens' to explore, each with its own charm and character. This truly is a place where you will find a garden for everyone. Alan and Graham have been customers and now friends of Thorncroft for more than two decades and their use of clematis varies from traditional to unique to quirky.
Coton Manor Gardens
Originally laid out in the 1920's by the grandparents of the present owners Ian & Susie Pasley-Tyler, the garden has been developed and extended by successive generations capitalising on its natural setting, attractive views and abundant water. The 17th century manor house acts as a central focus for the garden, its walls supporting many roses and shrubs, while the surrounding terraces are populated by numerous colourful pots and containers.
There are a great many clematis in the gardens used in all manner of ways and we are very grateful to Ian and Susie for letting us photograph their clematis and we use a lot of them on this website.
