This walk will meander through the grounds to discover the stories behind these beautiful and fascinating plants and will be guided by Guy Petheram, a garden designer with a particular passion for trees.
The Gardens at Doddington Hall are home to a wonderful array of trees, ranging from the ancient sweet chestnut planted around the time of Shakespeare and a centuries old Cedar of Lebanon to more recent additions such as a beautiful black walnut and a spectacular Ginkgo, a tree species so old that it once shared the Earth with dinosaurs.

Meet Your Guide – Guy Petheram
“As a garden designer for more than 15 years I have been lucky enough to get to know a wide range of plants, and indeed have been enchanted by many. But of the different types it is trees that captivate the most – and in this I know I am not alone. Beyond their usefulness in our gardens – in their creation of mood and atmosphere, structure and shape – they have a beauty and presence that both intrigues and somehow resonates with us.”
Based in Lincolnshire, Guy has been designing gardens and advising clients for more than 15 years throughout the East Midlands, and beyond, helping them create their own green havens, and everything from large country gardens to small town yards. Increasingly his focus is on consultancy and advice, and, through teaching, inspiring others to have a go at creating their green dreams.
